Members of the venerable all-male University Club of San Francisco have voted to maintain the club's 98-year tradition barring women from membership. "We don't discriminate against women," club President Murray Fox said Friday after the vote. "We love women. They come here frequently. We love to have them here, but not as members." The bylaws describe the 765-member club on Nob Hill as "an association of gentlemen."
