EIGHT BIA'TKEVIU.E (AUK.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 194t THE NATION TODAY Radio Stations to Seek Ruling On Legality oi Order by FCC Banning Give-Away Programs By Jamrs Marluw WASHINGTON, Aug. 20. <iPj—Your favorite radio and tele-vision tire-away programs probably will slay an Die air lung ndrr Oct. 1. Trial's the date when a Ffdeial Coiimnmii'alions Commission order would bar all, or most, of them from further broadi-usus: The FCC issued the Ol'der yesterday or] Ihest utoundsi .That the give-away or jutkpot programs are louenc-s or "gill enterprises" and so are 'contrary to a law governing radio. The radio people say this KCC inirrim-tathm is wrnni;. They'll light it in court to federal judges tan decide, who's right. people almo.-l+ And the radio . surely will get a conn order ufr- mitting the shows lo continue til! there is a court decision. Thai will be a good while alter Ocl. 1. The case revolves around this pan o( the law: There can be no broadcasting m ••any advertisement of or information concerning any lottery, Bill enterprise, or similar scheme, offering prizes dependent in whole or In part upon lot or chance, or any list of the pri/es drawn or awarded by means ot any such lot- terv gift enterprise, or schei'." ( whether said list contains any part or all of such prizes-" The FCC said a radio lottery is jtenerally one involving a imM, awarded ss a result of lot m- chwx'e, where the contestant jomethinit of value, or is reiimred to be listening or viewing the program over a receiver. Legal definitions of a lottery include three points: a prize, chance, and a •consideration." If you bought a ilcKet in some neighborhood lottery from a peddler on the street, the three local points of a lottery would be fulfilled: you were buying H« ticket to win 'a prize; there was a chance of winning it: and the money you paid was your "consideration. But is il a "consideration all you do is listen to without spending a penny hope you can answer a question if the master of ceremonies calls vour telephone number? ' The FCC thinks it is. It believes the lime you give lo listening. "• order to win a prize. Is eration.' The FCC salct: "Where such a scheme is designed to induced members of the public lo listen to the program and to be at home available for selection as a winner or possible winner, there results detriment to tho-e who are so induced to listen when they are under no duty to ilo so. - This interpretation of "consideration 1 has never been established in a court, government attorneys say here. And one member ol the -fCC itself. Miss Frieda Hemlock, who disagreed with the majority i of her fellow-commissioners, said: I "Tins is the ttrsi instance in! which a scheme has been called a lottery when the sole consideration supporting 11 is nominal or other than payment ol something of value." Gifts Taxable But the FCC order, going beyond lust the word "lottery." bans from the air any "gift enterprise, or similar scheme." That's broad enough to cover a \vitle variety of give-away programs. Suppose yon dn answer the ttues- • lo you've rained it and von must puy tax on the pti/.e VOL: KCI. If it's 11 cash pn/c. th'- .as Is easy to fipne. If it's a pme in goods-, yon Ime to |iay a tax equivalent to the value of the pr:/.e. Obituaries when radio, in the '•conoid- Lula Sharp Dies; Rites to Be Tofiiorrow Funeral .sorvict'.s for Mis.
