" (Gazette photo by Peei) most deceptive campaigns WASHINGTON iAPi — The red envelopes were ripped open and trophies handed out just like Emmy or Oscar night, but the winners of the "first annual" Harlan Page Hubbard Memorial Awards weren't on hand to note their selection—for the year's most deceptive or misleading advertising. Instead, the makers of Dexatrim diet pills, R.J. Reynolds Co. cigarettes. Skoal tobacco. Miller beer, Volvo automobiles. String Along toys and Uniden telephones, plus the Beef Industry Council, will have to nick UD their sold troohies — each topped with a lemon — sometime later. Named for a pioneer in the advertising of patent medicines, the Hubbards were awarded in eight categories Thursday, selected by a coalition of consumer and health groups.

The bad ad awards were instituted, said Bruce Silverglsde of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, because of laxity oa the Bart of the Federal Trade Commission- He said the groups hope to pressure the FTC to renew its efforts to police deceptive advertising and at the same time to warn consumers of the misrepresentations of the marketplace. An FTC official denied any reduction in the agency's efforts. "We do not share the premise that we are doing less in the area of advertising regulation." said Wallace Snyder, FTC associate director for advertising practices. "To the contrary, regulating advertising is one of our priority issues at the FTC." The "first Hubbard went to Dexa- trim diet pills, which had been chosen by the"Women's National Health Network. The group charged that Dexatrim ads rlaim safe weight loss, but fail to warn consumers that the product contains the chemical PPA^ which may raise blood pressure and thus should not be used by people with hypertension. Dean SiegaL a spokesman for the manufacturer. Thompson Medical Co.. challenged the women's group, stating that no scientific evidence exists linking PPA and hypertension. The Coalition on Smoking or Health made the second award, criticizing R.J. Reynolds Co. for its ad. "Of Cigarettes "and Science." which questioned a scientific study linking smoking with heart disease. Reynolds spokesman David Fishel said his company has offered to respond to any questions raised by the FTC. "We only urge members of the group to read the scientific criticism" addressed in the ads. he said. The Council on Alcohol Policy was critical of Miller beer ads featuring the winner of the Indianapolis 500 race, which the group said tend to associate alcohol with driving a race car. "The Miller High Life commercial featuring Danny~Sullrvan in no way connects" drinking and driving." responded Miller spokesman Steve Forsyth. Volvo was named in the auto category for Its ads for the 760 Turbo, which the Center for Auto Safety charged could tend to encourage reckless driving because of the high speed action depicted. This was particularly distressing because of the change from the past in which Volvo ads have tended to feature the strength and safety of their cars, said Dan Howell of the Center. Volvo officials declined to respond to the criticism. In the food category. Center for Science in the Public Interest renewed its criticism of the Beef Industry Council's ."Beef Gives Strength" campaign. These ads imply that beef is a healthy food, the center's Bonnie Laebman charged, while failing to note the presence of fat in red meats, which has been linked to heart disease and cancer. Del. drought emergency cuts usage HARRISBURG (AP) — Water consumption in the Delaware River Basin has decreased under drought emergency conservation measures, according to the state- Spot reports from water suppliers show the decline in water consumption, ranging from 3 percent to 10 percent, the state Department of Environmental Resources said Thursday.
