The first page opened with a poem by John G. Whittier, "Granted Wishes," followed by Aunt Martha's story, "Does It Pay to Be Unkind?" about a former Carlisle student's lack of cooperation by not translating business dealings from English after returning home. The second page featured news items about returned students, and a report about "The Entertainment." Page three listed many small news items that included spring planting, the Apache babies' development, girls preparing for upcoming outings in Maryland, band concerts, and flower arranging. The fourth page included an article "Changed her Mind," followed by a piece called "A Note-Carrier," in which the Man-on-the-Band-Stand scolded a boy for reading a private note.
