Re "University Voids Running Teams' Ban on Stripper," June 30, about the coach who kicked the student off Cal State Fullerton's track and cross-country teams because she worked part-time as an exotic dancer: According to the student's attorney, the coach has said that "stripping goes against his moral credo as a Christian." Of course, if stripping is against coach John Elders' religious beliefs, he certainly should not engage in it. However, there is a vast difference between saying, "My religion forbids me to," and, "My religion forbids you to."

Perhaps you've heard the odd news about the Odd Ball Cabaret, the North Hills strip joint that has been forced to shut down its "shower shows."

Following recent court decisions that nullified the city's adult entertainment ordinance and allowed two strip clubs to open, the city attorney last week said his office is drafting a law that would require strippers to remain partially clothed. City Atty. Jack L. White said the ordinance, which will be presented to the City Council next month, would require female strippers to wear at least a G-string and pasties while performing at bars and clubs in the city.
