    "Cannon Air Force Base in Clovis, N.M., has agreed not to show
the Demi Moore film `Striptease' as a result of a last-minute
petition signed by 15 officers in a Christian fellowship group.

    "Col. Michael Koerner, commander of the 27th Fighter Wing, agreed
with the airmen that the R-rated film, which features extensive
nudity, shouldn't be presented at the base movie theater . . . .

    "`The commander determined it ran counter to Air Force values and
family values and that it promoted sexual harassment and went against
the order and discipline of the wing . . . .'"
