And nearly the entire faculty has doctorates, while the average is about 54 percent.

(AP) — Web users have some advice for soon-to-be college freshman Chelsea Clinton About getting along on campus: Don’t be a name dropper. And don’t start every sentence “My Dad says...’* Excite Inc., which runs one of the popular “search engine’’ directories that let people find things on the World Wide Web, is asking its 2.5 million daily users how they think Chelsea should handle the challenges of attending Stanford University. The six Stanford grads who started the company four years ago want to help her — and make her laugh, said Joe Kraus, one of the founders. "But you know what I would really love? lf she would answer one of the polls — see what advice she gives herself,** said Kraus, Excite’s vice president.

Chelsea moves to Stanford in time for the Sept. 24 first day of classes. Newsweek reports in this week’s issue that her father told the Secret Service to let her have a “normal college life.” The magazine said her Secret Service guards will be casually dressed, some will be equipped with mountain bikes, and they will have a room in her dormitory'. Five more Excite surveys about Chelsea will run each Monday starting this week, Kraus said. Some of the topics may come from suggestions submitted by Excite users. One Stanford student had some tips for Chelsea if she gets homesick: “Attend a student sit-in, invite Dad Clinton to a dorm food fight, and try it and don’t inhale,” Kraus said. —Twenty-seven percent voted for "Toko the Republican Platform at every defame " —And 13 percent advised her not , ie’S (830) 379-1257 605 GLORIA The Gold Coin Store Professional Numismatists Since 1074 Gold German 20 Marks, Wilhelm ll, 1890-1913 A Classic Collector Coin At A Bullion Price Compare The Price See The Value Brilliant Uncirculated Gold German 20 Marks Vs.
