"proftpftd.conf" limiting read access in uploads directory for non ftpadmin

i have installed proftpd by rebuilding the src.rpm file. im running on redhat 9.
i want to allow anonymous uploads, and only ftp admin can see those files via ftp.

ftpadmin cannot see the uploaded files.

here is the anonymous section of my proftpd.conf.

<Anonymous ~ftp>
User ftp
Group ftp
AccessGrantMsg "Anonymous login ok, restrictions apply."

UserAlias anonymous ftp

MaxClients 5 "Sorry, max %m users -- try again later"

DefaultChdir /pub


<Directory uploads/*>
AllowOverwrite no
    <Limit READ>
        Deny !ftpadmin
<Limit STOR>

ExtendedLog /var/log/proftpd/access.log WRITE,READ default
ExtendedLog /var/log/proftpd/auth.log AUTH auth

thanx for any help!
