STUDENTS SNUB BARBARA BUSH

SHARE STUDENTS SNUB BARBARA BUSH

Some students at Wellesely College don't want Barbara Bush as their commencement speaker because, they say, she's a college dropout getting by on her husband's coattails. The first lady, who was Wellesley's second choice after writer Alice Walker declined, accepted the invitation to speak June 1, but some 150 students at the all-women Massachusetts school have signed a petition against her. Bush dropped out of Smith College after two years to marry George Bush.
