By From July 21 to 25, 15 representatives from Canyon High School Student Council attended a statewide workshop at Baylor University.
The students learned many
valuable leadership skills through the
various activities lead by Betty Kyle.
; Betty Kyle was the leadership consultant at Baylor and the student •council sponsor at CHS.
I All students were assigned ! councils die day they arrived.
Each council was given the challenge of setting up a mock high school and the only props given to
the councils were a name of a famous person who displayed leadership qualities.
By the end of the week, each council was acting not as a group that was thrown together, but a group that wanted to work for the good of the council.
CHS’s student council is looking forward to a great school year full of fun activities. Important upcoming dates for the student council are the river cleanup on Sept. 13 and the Comal County Fair parade on Sept. 26.

Cal-tech rated Money Magazine’s best buy
NEW YORK (AP) — The California Institute of Technology boasts 24 Nobel-prize winning professors and alumni. That's not the main reason Money magazine named it the best college buy in the nation for the second year in a row.
So why pick a school that demands $18,816 a year in tuition? It's a bargain for what you get, the magazine said Wednesday: one teacher for every three students and
an average of $47,677 spent on each undergrade The national average is $5,110. And nearly the entire faculty has doctorates, while the average is about 54 percent. The monthly magazine compared the data to tuition and fees to reach a value rating and rank the top 150, which appears in its September issue.
No Texas colleges were listed in the top IO.

Web users offer college-bound first daughter advice
By CATALINA ORTIZ
Associated Press Writer
SAN JOSE, Calif. (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.
He didn’t know if Chelsea, a computer user, had seen the survey The Clinton’s are vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard and there was no immediate response to calls to Hillary Rodham Clinton’s press office, which handles questions about Chelsea.
The company plans a series of surveys about the first daughter.
Several thousand people responded last week to the initial poll, which toked how Chelsea can survive a political science class after life in the White House.
They were asked to choose one of force suggested pieces of advice:
—Sixty percent went with: “Don’t ■tart sentences with 'My Dad says
Don’t start every sentence, *My dad says...’
to drop the names of heads of state.
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
