Some of the patrons entering Holiday Lake on July 2 were a little surprised when their cars were searched at the main gate. Before they could enter the Delanco lake for its official 1988 opening, patrons had to pass security guards who checked their coolers for alcoholic beverages, which are banned at Holiday Lake for the first time since it opened in the 1950s. Trinity Resources Inc., the lake's new owner, decided to make the change. The Willingboro religious group and its president, the Rev. Abraham Fenton, want to get rid of the drinking and loud music that have characterized the park in recent years.

The state Supreme Court has upheld the right of the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to ban holders of liquor licenses from advertising drink prices. Yesterday, the court, in four separate cases, upheld the constitutionality of a section of the liquor code that "prohibits a licensee from advertising in any manner whatsoever the price of any malt beverage, cordial, wine or distilled liquor offered for sale in this state. " A lower court had ruled that section unconstitutional.

Organizers of parties where alcoholic beverages are served to minors - not just those who serve it - could be responsible under Pennsylvania law for civil damages caused by intoxicated guests, a federal appeals court has ruled. The ruling yesterday by the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia reinstates cases filed against former officers of the Villanova University chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity, and broadens the reach of the state's social host liability law. The cases stem from an accident following a fraternity party in 1982.

GENEVA - Free beer will reportedly be verboten soon in Switzerland. Swiss weekly Sonntag says that the Cabinet has drafted a plan to ban restaurateurs from offering any free drinks to customers, extending a ban on other alcoholic beverages to beer. Bar owners would still be allowed to offer "spontaneous" rounds to regulars. The proposal has drawn strong opposition from the hospitality industry as free beer promotions are common in bars, restaurants and at public events in Switzerland.

Three of the four people charged with illegally operating bars out of private residences in the Crestmont section of Abington have been ordered to stand trial in Montgomery County Court. Abington District Justice M. William Peterson ruled Wednesday that Abington police did not present a case against Elijah Newman, 59, of the 2600 block of Lamott Avenue. Peterson said in an interview that he based his ruling on testimony from an undercover Liquor Control Board agent. Alberta Newman, 62, of the 2600 block of Lamott Avenue, Harry E. Thompson, 61, and Mable Stratton, 61, both of the 1600 block of Fairview Avenue, were charged along with Elijah Newman earlier this month with violations of two sections of the state Liquor Code relating to selling alcoholic beverages without a license.

DEAR ABBY: I live with two of my best friends. We get along great because we respect each other's personal space and business. My problem is that my roommate "Michelle" drinks alone in our apartment. She consumes eight to 12 alcoholic beverages in an evening. She does this once a week, usually during the week. The next morning she'll complain that she's "sick" when she has to get up for work, but I know she's hung over. Our other roommate spends little time at our place and doesn't want to speak to her about this, even though he agrees she has a problem.

EXECUTIVES WITHOUT PORTFOLIO. It's 9 a.m. - do you know where your spouse is? Many laid-off execs can't break the news to their families, and in some cases, they leave home each morning pretending to go to work, says William Glennon, senior vice president of Lee Hecht Harrison Inc., an outplacement- consulting firm. IF AT FIRST . . . Who is most likely to succeed with an exercise program? In a study conducted at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Johnson Space Center in Houston, it was found that the people most likely to stay with a 12-week program were those who had exercised before.

The Fairmount Park Commission has approved a request by the Friends of Pennypack Park that could lead to a ban on alcohol in the park. The next step, said Barry Bessler, assistant to the executive director of the commission, is to post the proposed change in a public place for 60 days. If no one makes a request for a hearing opposing the change, he said, the proposal would become an amendment to the Fairmount Park regulations. Then, the city would be notified of the change, he said.

After a day of swimming, castle-building, and sunbathing, there are few pleasures as relaxing to some vacationers as a cold beer on a warm summer's night, or a nice glass of Syrah to toast the sunset. But restaurants in the popular Jersey Shore beach town of Ocean City are banned from selling alcoholic beverages, or even allowing diners to bring their own. That could change, though, with a scheduled May 8 referendum. If the Bring Your Own Bottle proposal passes, patrons could bring their own refreshments to restaurants anywhere in Ocean City, except on the boardwalk.

HARRISBURG - For the first time in more than 18 months, the state Liquor Control Board has approved an increase in prices on more than 300 wines and liquor brands. At its semimonthly meeting Wednesday, LCB officials were unanimous in voting for the price hikes, requested by vendors of the alcoholic beverages in the face of increasing transportation and other costs associated with putting liquor on retail shelves. For the last year and a half, the three-member board has been rejecting price-increase requests, given the bad economy.

A ballot question in Moorestown has people scratching their heads and chuckling. The question appears to suggest that residents have a say over whether mojitos can be served on a plane flying thousands of feet above them. And in trains passing through. And in boats zipping along Pompeston Creek. "Shall the sale of all alcoholic beverages at retail, except for consumption on railroad trains, airplanes, and boats, and the issuance of any retail licenses, except as aforesaid . . . be permitted in this municipality?"
