Should the paper side go toward the head or the header? And for those of you that are using the stock manifold gaskets do you agree with using anti-seize or is that not necessary?

I wanted to thank cobalt327 for the advice on using stock manifold gaskets. Did the install on my '65 C10 this weekend and it worked great. Easiest header gasket swap I have ever done.
