HTML & CSS How to remove scroll bars


New Coder
I have a page with five columns. Column 2 contains a list of clickable names. Column 4 contains the story for whichever name is clicked. Columns 1, 3 and 5 are empty and are there only to help format the page. (There is almost certainly a better way to do this, but that’s a question for another time.)

The whole page, and Column 4, both have vertical scroll-bars. When I have scrolled down to the bottom of Column 4 not all of the content in the story for that column is visible. To see the rest of it I have to scroll down the main page, then scroll down Column 4.

I would like to be able to have only one scroll-bar, I think preferably on the full page, which will let me scroll down to see the whole story in Column 4.

The relevant parts of my files are:

/* Columns col1, col3 and col5 are just for formatting the page. All content is in col2 and col4 */

.col1 {
  width: 9%; background-color: wheat;
.col2 {
  width: 21%; background-color:wheat;
.col3 {
  width: 1%; background-color:wheat;
.col4 {
  width: 50%; background-color:wheat; overflow:visible;

.col5 {
  width: 19%; background-color: wheat;
<div class="row">

<div class="column col1" >

<div class="column col2"  >
    <iframe src="Smith Family menu.html" title="" width="100%" height="1000px" style="border:none" >

<div class="column col3" >
<div class="column col4" >
    <iframe src="Smith Family History Introduction.html"   name="myFrame" width="100%" height="1000px"  style="border:none">

<div class="column col5"

<li><a href="Bill Smith.html" target="myFrame">Bill Smith</a></li>

Thank you for any assistance.
