Major subject categories indexed include: City and county government; Business and the economy; Education; and Community services, problems, and cultural events.
FORMAT OF INDEX:  Indexing is first done by typing 3x5 cards. At the of each year, the cards are retyped onto 8½x11 inch pages and bound into a book. Entries are arranged in alphabetical order with both subjects and personal names interfiled in the same alphabet. Entries consist of the headline, month, day, year, page, and column.
SIZE OF INDEX:  About 4000 entries per year (180 pages).
