NUDITY IN THE NEWS rears up everywhere these days - or so it seems when surfing the wire services for human-interest tidbits. In Guadalajara, Mexico, for example, it's OK now for male dancers to drop their drawers. The city's conservative government, which earlier had refused to permit male strippers to perform in a revue titled "For Women Only," reversed itself after it was bombarded by protests from women. City officials had rejected the act - in which nine studs strip naked but turn their backs to the audience at the moment of truth - because they considered it to be an affront to local morals. So what do we call the strip act, the Full Maracas?

TWO AMERICAN strippers have been given a year's probation by a Bermuda court after they took it all off, sparking a small riot at a nightclub in Hamilton, the capital of the British colony. Patrons who packed the club began scuffling with two undercover policewomen who were spotted secretly videotaping the striptease act. When police rushed in to rescue the policewomen they were showered with bricks and bottles. The two dancers put on probation, Vincent Richardson and Daryl Graham, both of New Jersey, said they were unaware strip shows are illegal in Bermuda. We nearly forgot to mention - they were performing in a Mother's Day show.

A 41-YEAR-OLD Allentown man, Stanley Heiserman Jr., has pleaded guilty and no contest to six robberies, a couple of them while naked. In one case, police said, he had no clothing except for underwear, which he was wearing on his head. In another, he walked naked into an Allentown convenience store. Cashiers started chuckling until he said he had a gun in a bag and demanded money. When he entered the pleas in Lehigh County Court he told the judge the robbery spree was the result of him being on drugs and being distraught because his mother was dying. His sentencing is set for June 17. Wonder if he'll dress for the occasion.

EXOTIC DANCERS wanted: send resumes to the Florida Department of Labor/Bureau of Workforce Program Support. That's not a joke. The ad in the Palm Beach Post was paid for by an unidentified nightclub, but the resumes are to be submitted to the Florida Labor Department. The club wants to hire a dancer from another country. Under federal law, before a foreigner can be hired the state Labor Department first must see if any American wants the job. A Florida Labor Department administrator said the agency must pursue the matter to try to recruit legal workers in this country. It'll probably get some resumes from New Jersey.
