Miss Canada, 20-year-old Lana Buchburger of Calgary, Alberta, was second runner-up. "I'm very pleased," Smith, a sophomore at San Jacinto College, said at a post-pageant news conference.

It is an on-line service from The Arizona Daily Star that combines three major sources: the daily newspaper, the Star library and the Internet. Several things set us apart from other on-line services. First, our hot links to the news. These links, which appear at the end of stories, take users directly to other news and information sources. Second, our library, which features the last four years of local stories from the Star. Do you want to read a movie or restaurant review from 6 months ago? Do homework on a local issue? Check the Star library. StarNet provides full access to the Internet, but we're more than a pipeline. StarNet reporters and editors act as your guide to the Internet We continually search the Net for information that" important to Arizonans. Try Games Domain, which includes pointers to hundreds of downloadable games. Wares include freeshare and shareware, as well as a com What you need, take 2 Personal computers need a few basics to connect to StarNet. Owners of IBM compatibles should have a machine with at least a 386SX-16 chip, four megabytes of RAM and 7.5 megabytes of disk space. You have a choice of operating systems: Windows 3.1, WIN 95, OS2 Warp or Linux. Macintosh owners need similar RAM and hard-drive space. They also need MacTCP installed in the control panels folder. Operating system 7.5 comes with MacTCP. Users of earlier systems need to buy the system 7.5 upgrade. Or. you can buy one of the Mac Internet books that comes with a disk. The "Mac Internet Starter Kit" and "Microphone Pro" are two such books. And, as we've said before, we strongly recommend that all customers use a modem of 14,400 bits per second or higher. Music jokes On the weekends StarNet will always take you to the lighter side of the Internet. Today, we'd like to introduce you to a page of jokes, maintained by a guy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The humor here covers instruments, singers and conductors. Here's a sample: Why do bagpipe players walk away while they play? To get away from the noise. What's the difference between a violinist and a dog? The dog knows when to stop scratching. How many lead guitarists does it take to change a light bulb? None. They steal someone else's. rmiFftOTTTTS TC tt al tfiaa, K. prehensive list of The Associated Press Miss Universe Chelsi Smith Miss Universe chosen in Africa.

Pharaohs A link that is certain to lure those interested in ancient history is the tour of Abydos, the sacred necropolis of the early Pharaohs. It later became a religious site to which worshipers of Osiris made pilgrimages. The web site consists of an interactive map with eight stops, including tombs. Each stop reveals photographs of ancient carvings. You can zoom most of the photos. Some of the pictures are dark, but the tour is nevertheless most interesting.
