LOS ANGELES '(AP) -- Au-! thorities were investigating the possibility today that inside information was available to burglars who took more than 100 iweanons and thousands of rounds of ammunition from a C a l i f o r n i a Army National Guard armory in suburban Compton. "I've been a cop 10 years and I worked in burglary for three years and I've never seen a more professional job." Compton police Sgt. Cliff Smith said. "They had that place covered like a blanket. They knew exactly what to dp, .where to go and what to take. There was no wasted effort." He said the burglars appeared to have Just the right equipment to accomplish their job. "Nothing inside the armory, was · used to. get where they/were going," Smith told'a reporter Friday night. Authorities said they had no hard, leads on who: was responsible for the theft while the armory, was not guarded, some time .betwen Wednesday morning and : Thursday night. Investigators said they also were studying-.the possibility that the theft was engineered by a terrorist organization. SCENE CHECKED The investigation by police, the FBI and the California Mih t a r y Department included checking; fingerprints'taken at the scene and contacting arma 1 ment stores 'and truck leasing companies. Military authorities listed the stolen, weapons and ammunition as: 96, M16 rifles; seven M60 machine guns; eight M79 grenade .launchers;! one .45-caliber autoamtic pistol and 156 bayonets; '· 3,360 rounds of 5.56mm M16, bullets; 1,000 rounds of 7.62 mm machine gun bullets; 45 rounds of .45-caliber bullets; 40 grenades; 16 smoke grenades'; 100 riot grenades and 75 gas 'masks.-.' National Guard officials estimated the loss at $22,686.56. : M16 rifles cost the government $142 each', M60 machine guns $578. and M79 grenade: launchers i $222. A .45-cai: pistol costs $57, ! the bayonets were", valued at |702, the ammunition -'.at $405.10,' the: grenades" at $866.24 and'the-gas masks at $1,202.25. Federal sources say M16 rifles are · selling on the black market for $300 to $600 each, and M60 machine guns sell for more'than $1,000. The thieves left virtually no usable firearms at the armory, an investigator said. National Guard spokesmen said the firing pins and bolt as- 'semblies for the M16 rifles, the M60 machine guns and the M7E grenade launchers were stored Home Loan Rates Upped WASHINGTON (AP) -- The maximum interest rate on fed erally insured home mortgage is being increased to a record per cent, effective Monday.

(AP) -- Tav- Robert Sucharda, era owner like many other bartenders, has always thought of, himself as a poor man's 'psychiatrist. But now he has a framed diploma on the wall of his neigh: borhood' bar, , Bob's Tap, to Sucharda and a dozen other bartenders got their diplomas this week from the Racine 'County Mental Health Association in , a new program. to teach barmen to help disconsolate drinkers who cry in their beer; "A lot of people drink when they have problems," said Sudnrda, 52, » bartender for 24 years. "And they usually] talk to the bartender, telling him their; troubles. But now I know' : do!" The program, the brainchild of Dr.'Wendell Hunt of the Milwaukee County Mental Health Foundation, · Consisted of five three-hour sessions that focused on training bartenders to recognize what kind of problems their drinkers have. '." :·. It also' gives' them « knowledge of where-people can go to g e t help, · . . . . ' . . . ' For instance, program direc. tor. Ruth Wayland of;;Racine said, .the bartender can guide his patrons to public agencies offering aid for medical, emo- tional, juvenile, financial and alcoholism problems. · "We're not trying to teach bartenders to become armchair psychiatrists," Mrs,., Wayland said. ''We teach them how to listen..They're not supposed to analyze problems or anything like that.", "We don't push it," Sucharda said. ."There are times when a guy isn't going to, want you to butt into his business. They have to want help themselves: A lot of people just don't know where to go, and that's where we come in." Dr. B.. W.'Bciter, who guided the training period at the Ra- ment Center, said the bartenders, are the logical choice for helping people whp don't know where to turn. "Fate has placed tavern keepers in the position of hearing these cries for help, often from people who wouldn't be there in'the first place if they knew-where to turn," he said. Hunt said bartenders can be particularly helpful to' persons in lower socio-economic groups, "Studies show that ministers and bartenders have the most contact with inner city residents," he said. "Ministers are trained to help the people who go to church, so why shouldn't bartenders be trained to help suffering an accidental gunshot wound in the abdomen. A report on the accident was not immediately available at the Washington County sheriff's office; but it is believed that Scott ' w a s . carrying :a gun, leaped over, and the gun accidentally discharged, causing a flesh wound over the stomach.
