WELLESLEY, Mass. -- She's precisely the kind of woman they had in mind. High-powered and hard-charging. Credentialed. Professionally successful. Outspoken.Not that Barbara Bush wasn't a huge hit when she spoke to Wellesley College's graduating class of 1990. Not that her warmth and wit didn't win over most of those students who'd earlier protested her selection as commencement speaker.But as Hillary Rodham Clinton, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Bill Clinton, returned to her undergraduate alma mater yesterday to address students and alumnae, the Yale-educated lawyer seemed the envy and pride of many at the private women's college outside Boston.

MaryAnne Walls from Knoxville, Tenn., has been searching for two years for a favorite coffee cake recipe she had misplaced. She said it was called Wellesley coffee cake and she thought that it came from a cookbook called "Come for Cocktails, Stay for Supper. " She said that it was made in a bundt pan, with a middle layer of cinnamon, brown sugar and chopped pecans. Barbara Blaker from Timonium, along with several other readers, had a copy of the cookbook Walls mentioned and sent in the recipe she was looking for. The book was written by Marian Burros and Lois Levine and published in 1970 and clearly was very popular.

Can we just accept it as a given that good teachers are even more inspiring than they are informative? Do we need a movie about every man or woman who ever opened young people's eyes to possibilities outside their normal realm of experience? Mona Lisa Smile stars Julia Roberts as just such an inspiring classroom presence, a free-spirited, West Coast art-history instructor who hits 1950s-era Wellesley College like a bomb blast about 20 years ahead of her time. She's beautiful and she's smart and she wants her girls to be all she thinks they can be, and woe to any man or institution that gets in her way. As the movie would have it, she was about as welcome at Wellesley in 1953 as a case of the plague, and just about as subtle.

The Clinton-Lazio debate was about what you expect when Wellesley plays Vassar. Archeologist claim to have discovered an ancient flood site, but Noah got there first. One theory is you improve the schools by closing them, which is open to dispute. If Europe came to halt, so would the Gulf oil fields. Cheer up. You don't have to watch the Olympics live before dawn.

George unveiled his secret weapon, a big tent. Looks like a winner. Someone better tell Al. Can the party of Laura Bush and Colin Powell really be the party of Tom DeLay and Strom Thurmond? Of course, they have it upside down. You'd want seasoned old Cheney for president, young George for veep. The showdown is Harvard v. Yale. For NY senator, it's Wellesley v. Vassar. (Lazio is Vassar. You could look it up.)

The cop was patrolling the tony L.A. neighborhood when he spotted a black man driving a Ferrari. Immediately suspicious, he called in for a license check, and sure enough, the plates belonged to another car. The cop hit the lights, and the black man in the white neighborhood in the expensive car pulled over, figuring he must have been speeding. Except he never heard of a cop drawing a gun and pointing it at a suspect's head if the suspect was guilty of nothing more serious than driving 35 in a 30.As the black man in the white neighborhood got out of his expensive car, the cop slapped on the cuffs and held him, face down, at gunpoint.

The women who graduated from Wellesley College in 1969 were among the best and brightest of their generation. The most famed class member, Hillary Rodham Clinton, went on to become first lady, her career fueled in part by a message drilled into every Wellesley student: You have the talent and drive to be anything you choose to be.It's a message that every child ought to hear. When delivered by an elite institution such as Wellesley, it's a message that can be both blessing and burden.It's a blessing because Wellesley grads did learn to aim high.

The chick flick of the moment, Julia Roberts' Mona Lisa Smile, is resplendent with details befitting a proper lady: red lips, pearls, gloves and a sleek silhouette. In this case, the lady is a 1950s Wellesley Girl -- but one need only look to fashion runways, contemporary magazines and well-heeled city streets to realize that a modern-day version of the Wellesley Girl has marched into mainstream fashion. We asked Mona Lisa Smile costume designer Michael Dennison, the man who dressed a cast including Julia Stiles, Kirsten Dunst and Maggie Gyllenhaal, about how to bring 1950s style into modern day. What is the look of a Wellesley Girl, circa 1950, and how did you define it?

The question, Dr. Freud, is not what do women want, but what should women do? Should they be wives and mothers or captains of industry, domestic drones or divas, islands of independence or fools for love? Through the 1970s and '80s, women believed they were supposed to strive to have it all, and if they couldn't simultaneously manage a fabulous career, a loving relationship (with a record-setting sex life) and at least a well-adjusted pet, not to mention brainy, happy children, then they were a disgrace to their gender.

This time last year, College of Notre Dame sophomore Katie Parks was a freshman at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia. But when administrators announced that the Pennsylvania women's college would become a coed institution in fall 2003, Parks decided to transfer to another college. "I was shocked and upset because I didn't want the focus to be off of education and on to: `Oh look, there's a guy,'" the 19-year-old Bowie resident said. So she contacted the admissions office at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, which soon will be the only exclusively women's college in the state.

The heat and light of summer may be upon us, but it can't dissipate the noir chill that runs through some newly published thrillers. The five reviewed here were chosen for their ability to create a cold, dark cocoon whose shadow lingers past the last page. Clare Francis probes the malice threaded through everyday lives in Betrayal (Soho Press, 372 pages, $25). Hugh Wellesley has all of the trappings of success -- the glassware business he inherited from his father, a London house and a country estate, a beautiful wife and a mistress.

WASHINGTON -- When Harry Wright, star of the Cincinnati Red Stockings and then the Boston Red Stockings, pioneers of professional baseball, died in 1895, a floral arrangement at his funeral spelled out "Safe at Home." That delightful story would be more so, but for Wright's age. He was 60. Looking on the bright side, as conservatives are, for sound philosophic reasons, disinclined to do, I take comfort, of sorts, from the fact that by turning 60 I am freed from the fear of dying young.
