If you number both sides of the page, you must use both sides or you must draw a line through the un-used page. If you number only one side of the page, you must not use the un-numbered page. 2. All entries must be made in ink. Entries must be neat and legible. Carry a straight edge for lines. 3.

All entries are to be dated and initialed.
