    Post Noob needs help!

    accepts two strings and returns the character index of the position
    where the second string begins in the first; returns -1 if the second string does not appear in the first.

    IN: mississippi ss OUT: 2
    IN: superlative zzl OUT: -1

    public class Test {
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		String s1 = "mississippi";
    		String s2 = "s";
    		System.out.print(findInStr(s1, s2));
    	public static int findInStr(String s1, String s2) {
    		char c =(char) s2; 
    		if( s1.substring(1, s1.length()-1) == c ) {
    			return s1.indexof(c);
    			return -1;
