California Club Votes on Women

The elite California Club, for 100 years an all-male institution, announced today it has asked its members to vote by the end of the month for a change in its bylaws that would allow the admission of women as regular members.

Four days after Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley signed a municipal ordinance banning discriminatory membership policies at most big private clubs in the city, the California Club board of directors said the club "is composed of responsible citizens who have always respected the law of our city and state and will continue to do so."
