The Good Housekeeping seal states 'Institute' here whereas the ones from 1937 states 'Bureau.'
They were apparently continuous multi-part forms with interleaved carbon paper; the ones present being an original and thus the top sheet or copy 1 (unstated.) Fine perforations are found along top and bottom with pin feed holes at the sides.
