Evidently when you insert columns, Word inserts a new section. The document
had extra section breaks, so I was able to fix the numbering by deleting the

Is the following a layout scheme that Word is meant to use?

- Sideheads on pages
- Two pages of two-column text
- Continuation of sideheads on pages
