AT THK STROKE OF MIDNIGHT Pilot Point Goes Dry Wednesday By MIKE MOON Staff Writer midnighl Wednesday, two highly-profitable businesses will be out of business after about two months of operation. Bill's Place and Joe and Joe's Place, Denlon County's only beer stores since 1935, will close their doors at the end of their business day Wednesday as a result of a prohibition election a month ago which passed 363 to 267. During the short time thi two stores were in operation, an estimated 32,000 cases of were sold for an estimated $136,000. Beer retailers average about $1 profit per case sold. The two stores were both a short distance closer to Denton than the closest Dallas store.

Joe and Joe's Place, located just of! the Pilot Point square, is 15 miles from the Denton city limits while Bill's Place, 7 miles east of Pilot Point on FM 455 is 22.1 miles from Denton's boundary. The nearest Dallas store is about 26 miles. Billy J. Mayer, owner of Bill's Place said he will have about 2,200 cases in his regular stock for Wednesday's last day of sales. Robert Mayer, his brother who operates the store, said three beer distributors will park their vans at the beer store with 1,000 cases all day and most of the night Wednesday to restock Bill's Place when necessary.

The bulk of Mayer's stock on hand about 1,500 cases is Cows, the Colorado-made beer which is just being introduced to this part of Texas. Jay's Liquors, a Dallas firm, has agreed to buy all of Mayer's stock that is left over after midnight Wednesday. "They will buy my stock at a small margin of profit," Mayer said. That price will be over the regular wholesale rate at which Jay's normally buys its stock, Mayer explained. But, Dallas stores can't get Coors until September and Jay's Li- auors is after Mayer's slock of that particular brand.

Mayer said that he has received about a dozen bids from people who want to buy his frame building. The 14 by 28 foot store cost $1,500 new. His Hertz refrigerated rcnt-a-truck will be returned Thursday to the dealer. Before the first week of business had passed, it was discovered that Mayer's reach in cooler didn't hold enough beer so he rented the truck for $125 a week. With the truck, he has kept about 500 cases of cold beer on hand.

His reach cooler also has been sold for a small profit, he said. "It's strange," Mayer said. "Any time you close up a business and sell out your stock and equipment, you usually take a beating." However, Mayer will have nothing left after this venture but money.

School trustees met this morning at Ramada Inn for Strickland's report and to award contracts for paving, milk, ice cream, bread and gasoline for the coming school year.

The board met with members of the architectural firm of Wilson, Patterson, Sowden, Dunlap and Epperly of Fort Worth in a special meeting last month to discuss fall out protection possible nuclear explosives afforded by an aboveground structure. No decisions were made at that meeting and the architects agreed to discuss their aboveground plans with civil defense officials here. Their first plan was to use the gym as protection since it was surrounded by other rooms. The officials determined then that an 11- to 12-inch concrete roof would be necessary to provide protection from above. The architects indicated that the plan was not practical since roof area would weigh 125 to 140 pounds per square foot.
