(AP) -Bartenders who know more about their trade than how to slosh branch water and bourbon into a glass may soon find themselves worth their weight in vintage champagne in Virginia. Voters in some two-thirds of the state voted approval of local option liquor-by-the-drink proposals during the Nov. 5 election, ending 52 years of drought.

West Palm Beach Phone 833-3443 t MAC or 833-7000 The report noted that "there have been many recent statements in the press that the District of Columbia has the highest rate of reported crime of large cities in the United States." The report, made available Tuesday, was originally prepared for a meeting of the Southern Medical Association in New Orleans last week. The medical and statistical researchers indicated that the figures on reported forcible rape among cities with over 500.000 population were adapted from FBI reports for 19ti7 covering all types of sexual and other crimes in the United States. Behind Los Angeles, with a rate of 51.1 cases per 100.000 population, the breakdown Usted thesecities in order: Baltimore. 48.2: St. Louis. 47; Detroit. 43: Chicago. 39; Pittsburgh.

The statistics on the rate of forcible rape offenses known to police were part of an overall discussion of cases of alleged sexual assaults of all kinds on women and girls in the District of Columbia during 33' 2 months from Sept. 15. 15 through June 30. 18. During that period, the Metropolitan Police Department received about 3.000 complaints of alleged sexual assault, the report said, adding: "The sex squad brought half of these complainants to medical examination, practically all female. "Of those examined, about 85 per cent were nonwhite. much higher than their representation in the population. "Ages ranged from 1 to 88 years, with the highest number at age 14. The incidents varied trom forcible and attempted rape trough statutory rape, to molestation of Pattern Shown: PICTORIAL GOLD Designer Gallery Carpets of AcrilaiT byAlexander Smith Ik MONTH-END SHOE CLEARANCE ONLY $1193 sq- yd. Ask about our Easy Payment Plan red tape items as certification of election results. While there is little doubt as to the certification of results in the state's metropolitan areas, it appears now that the slip twixt the cup and the lip may be a shortage of bartenders. Arthur Lawson, who directs one of the mushrooming new bartending schools in Norfolk, expects restaurant owners who plan by-drink sales to begin to feel the pinch as they start looking for qualified drink pourers. "We're already getting requests for bartenders," he said. This despite the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board's strict rules that all but guarantee Virginians won't be toasting in the New Year over a public bar. Lawson said he doesn't believe in the theory advanced by a Richmond restaurant owner that people will continue to sip bourbon and water. His school teaches courses in about a dozen "high call" drinks and equips student bartenders with a written guide to the more exotic beverages. Mrs. Dorothy Bender of the Colony Club in Richmond, like most persons associated with private clubs, is not concerned with the bartender shortage. "We train our own bartenders." she said. But she had some advice for restaurant owners going into the by-the-drink business, especially those who think their patrons are going to stick to bourbon and water. "They're going to try a little of this and a little of that." she said. "The bartender is going to have to know what he's doing. He can't just stand there and refer to his bartender's guide."
