FORMAT OF INDEX:  A book-form index consisting of typewritten 10¼ x 12½ inch pages, bound into 4 volumes with 377 pages in total. It appears that each year of the newspaper has been indexed separately. Each index is arranged in alphabetical order with both subject and personal names in the same alphabet. A check list of all personal names which appear in the index and all subject headings used in the index has been provided for each of the annual indexes. Entries consist of the headline or a brief description, followed by the citation. The citation consists of the issue number, the page and the column where the article appeared. A chart at the front of each index translates the issues number into an equivalent month, day and year.
