(Staff Photo by Eldon Cage) WASHINGTON (UPI) -The Federal Trade Commission today accused the Reader's Digest of misleading the public with 11 promotional sweepstakes which were less than half as rich as advertised. The commission announced a proposed order which would require Reader's Digest, in all future sweepstakes, to award all prizes of the value and type advertised and to use names only with prior written consent. The order also would require the magazine to reveal the long odds against winning. Reader's. Digest may accept the order or demand a hearing on the charges. The commission said in 11 sweepstakes conducted since January, 1966, the magazine claimed winners would receive 699,293 prizes worth $5,656,000 but that only 274,282 prizes worth about 2,530,700 were awarded. All li contests were of the "you may already have won" variety in which millions of tickets, each bearing a printed number, were mailed to pros pective purchasers of Reader's Digest magazine and other of the firm's products. Winning numbers when drawn before the tickets were mailed. The commission said if a winning ticket was returned, the prize was warded but. if the ticket was not returned, the prize was not awarded. In addition, the commission said, winners of third r fourth prizes were required to submit an affidavit while winners of first and second prizes were required to submit to an interview with a private detective. These conditions were not disclosed prior to the contest.- The commission said the Diges implied that all participants had a "reasonable" chance to win when the odds were 980,000 to 1 against winning a first prize and 480,000 to 1 against winning a second prize. The commission also said the magazine implied tickets were mailed only to a few peoople when in reality they were sent to millions of persons.
