October 26, 1986|United Press International

WELLESLEY, Mass. — Forty-three Wellesley College students arrested for demonstrating against South African apartheid told police they were all named "Winnie Mandela" and were jailed overnight. Some of their classmates boycotted school Friday.

It was not immediately known how many students took part in the boycott, although one student estimated that about half of the college's 2,200-student population were involved.
