Line drawn at hiring male stripper HATNHAM, England The men who operate Rain- ham's United Services Club like to book strip tease girls for their stag parties but they drew the line here at hiring a male stripper for the next la- dies-only evening. Women members asked for the male strip act to liven up the entertainment but the re- quest was rejected by the club's ruling committee, en- tirely composed of men, and the ladies were irate. "Why should the men lay down what sort of entertain- ment we said Barbara Charlton, 38. "They're a hypo- critical and selfish lot. It seems all right for them to have fe- male strippers and it's about time they realized we should be able to have the entertain- ment we want."
