Goodbye to girlhood WELLESLEY It's orientation day at Wellesley College, the Seven Sisters school that gave us Diane Sawyer, All McGraw and Madame Chiang Kai-shek. The first-year students they are never, ever, "freshmen," I am reminded time and again arrive early, looking impossibly young and toting computers, television sets and stuffed animals. It's one of those perfect and rare New England days, when blue skies and gentle breezes can massage away memories of stifling heat and bitter cold. I can only guess at the students' first impression of Wellesley, but mine is immediate. There Is not one student in blue jeans.

Nojt even the young woman from Berkeley, who Is wearing stylish shorts. (OK, so she sports dozens of bracelets, anklets and three earrings in each ear. Still no jeans.) When I entered college as the Vietnam War was winding down, you'd be hard-pressed to find a student not wearing Jeans. But at Wellesley, the only person I pass all day wearing the quintessential campus uniform is a father. Freeman Hall, Dhawn Martin and her roommate, Dietra Green, are getting acquainted.

Dhawn, who Is from San Antonio, has brought her 75-year-old grandmother, Betty June Bristol. Dietra, from Newport News. Is surrounded by six family members. Both young women are the only child in their families, r. The day before, Dhawn had kissed her mother goodbye at San Antonio International Airport.

They had promised not to, but both cried. "It'll never be the same again," said her mother. And now, here was Dhawn, who has never left home for more than 10 days, never traveled farther north than Kansas, astranger in a strange land, meeting someone' with whom she will share a small room and a new world. The roommates immediately vow to get thpse essentials: a telephone and mini-fridge. Dhawn's grandmother is busy folding sweaters neatly.

"My mother couldn't get away from work." Dhawn says, "and Nana wanted to make sure. 'That everything was all right," interrupts her grandmother, with whom Dhawn and her mother have lived since Dhawn's parents were divorced 15 years ago. Dhawn is the first in her family to attend a four-year college. The day before, Dhawn and her grandmother took a cab from the airport to a Wellesley motel: "a dump," Dhawn says. At night, they propped six suitcases and some chairs against the door, because, as Dhawn puts it, "there were grossies hanging around." Homesick.

Dhawn cried into her pillow. Dhawn's high school, with 2,800 students. Is bigger than Wellesley College, which has 2,200. Most of her friends chose the University of Texas, but' Dhawn wanted a small school and a different culture. There are no men at Wellesley, but, as Dhawn puts it, "they're close by, very Close." Signs plastered throughout the dorm attest to that.

"Sigma Phi Epsilon, Super Bitchin' Wicked Awesome, Dance-Till-It-Hurts Party," entices one. Dhawn and Dietra plan to hit some parties over the weekend. "Everyone says to look out, because this Is rush weekend and the guys are only out for one thing," says Dietra. "But I don't care. I'm psyched!" An article in the school newspaper tells new students never to ask! "What grade are you in?" at a party, and warns that some of the freshmen from Massachusetts Institute of Technology will be shy.

writes the reporter, "we're talking about guys who read Artificial Intelligence As she walks toward the gymnasium for registration, Dhawn comments on the unfamiliar: trees, hills, squirrels and northern accents. Her church sent her away with a Bible, and the Wellesley Club of San Antonio held a luncheon and warned her of the It was a great day for the Irish game 900 gather in West Roxbury to watch broadcast of hurling championship old son and 4-year-old daughter, police said. Urena ran to the nearby home of her cousin, Oneida Gomez, crying that she had been stripped of her clothing by a man who was murdering her children, Gomez told police. About an hour later, police took Urena into custody and later charged her with two counts of first-degree murder. Police discovered the bodies of Urena's two children, Pershi Pena, 8, and Kelly America Pena, 4, in the bedroom of the apartment.

Both suffered multiple stab wounds to the upper body, police said. Police provided no details on the investigation that led to Urena's arrest during the brief hearing before Judge Francis Darrigan of Providence. Despite a written protest from the Boston Darrigan conducted the hearing in a detective's office with only one television reporter and one newspaper reporter present. About a dozen media representatives were at police headquarters. According to Doane Hulick, a Providence Journal reporter who attended the hearing, Urena appeared alert but nervous.

Through an interpreter, Urena, who speaks only Spanish, repeatedly asked "to see my sister," Hulick said. She was not represented by an attorney. Darrigan told Urena she could see her sister at the state Institute of Mental Health in Cranston. Darrigan said a public defender would be appointed to repe-sent Urena.

"The two teams played in the semifinals last year and everybody wanted to see them play again." Yesterday was the second All-Ireland championship in a row for Galway. In Boston, the broadcast was for many a renewal of ties to the country they still miss. "I would say it was as good as going into Croke Park in Dublin," Sean Lyons, 60, said after the match. "It was Just as exciting today as it was for my first game." Lyons came to Boston from Ireland 40 years ago. "It's a great feeling.

It's wonderful to see an All-Ireland being played," said John Sugrue, 50. who emigrated 25 years ago. "We can't be there, but at least we have a feeling like we're there'watching it today." Ann Horan, 26, said she has watched the broadcast of every final, since she moved from Galway to Brighton six years ago. "This is the best feeling you could ever have," Horan said. "It's like being at home." broadcasts of hurling matches every year since 1973, GAA organizer William Kelly said.

In recent years, the games have been shown at the Village Theater. Kelly said yesterday's event was the biggest turnout ever in Boston for an Irish sports broadcast. And former hurler John Monahan, 67, said, "I am so happy about it. It's the best crowd we've had this year or any time in Boston for an event like this. It's absolutely fantastic." In hurling, two teams of 15 players use wooden sticks to try to hit a ball into goals set up on opposite sides of a playing field.

The game, which is played in two 35-minute halves, resembles field hockey, but with a larger ball and bigger sticks. Yesterday's match was a close one up to the final minute, when Galway scored a three-point goal that ensured the victory. At that point, the crowd at the Village Theater whooped and hollered, and many spectators hugged each other wildly. "The majority of the Irish people in By Dana Fulham Contributing Reporter A screaming, cheering, record-breaking crowd packed a West Roxbury theater yesterday morning to watch what is billed as Ireland's greatest sporting event. Shouts of "Galway, Galway, Gal-way" rocked the old Village Theater as more than 900 people, most of them Irish Immigrants, watched the All-Ireland Hurling Final broadcast live from Dublin's Croke Park on closed-circuit television.

Galway beat Tipperary, 17-13, to deafening cheers from Boston fans in the event one spectator called "the World Series of the Irish national game." "When I reach 50, my heart won't be able to take it. No way. It's too intense. It's unbelievable. You don't have an event in American sports that matches lt," said Jerry Kealy, a 24-year-old carpenter who moved from Galway to Roslindale three years ago.
