Callaghan, Director The All-Stars of the regular division of Potomac Little League, dropped a heart- breaking 1-0 decision Friday evening to Grafton in the opening round of the West Virginia District 6 post-season playoffs. The Potomac Stars had battled their way into the district playoffs by defeating the Martinsburg Stars by a 5-2 score. The loss by the Potomac Stars eliminated them from any further state playoff' com- petition. The Potomac Stars and Grafton were to have played Thursday evening in the opening game of the tournament staged in Philippi, but the deluge of rain which hit Philippi prior to game time forced postponement for a day.

Dillow fanned 10 Grafton batsmen and gave up only six hits, but his pitching performanee was over- shadowed by one which the Grafton pitcher turned in, of the West Virginia Department of Natural Resources, has an- nonnced that his agency has filed emergency regulations with the Secretary of State's office regarding the sale and harvest of wild, native ginseng. These regulations are to become effective immediately. In essence, these emergency regulations set the collecting season for wild, native ginseng from August 1 to November 15; require any person who collects wild, native ginseng upon the enclosed or posted lands of another person to obtain per- mission in writing from the owner, tenant or agent of such lands and have in his possession such written permission when collecting ginseng upon said lands; require any porson who collects wild, native ginseng to. plant the seeds from the plants he collects at the site of the digging; and require any person, firm or corporation who buys wild, native ginseng to obtain a ginseng dealer's permit from the Department of Natural Resources. Director Callaghan noted that the emergency ginseng rules and regtilations are to be in effect for 90 days, His depart- ment hopes to get final approval on these regulations from the legislative rule-making review committee in August. So far, West Virginia's ginseng program is one of five which is being proposed by the federal Endangered Species Scientific Authority (ESSA) to receive approval to export ginseng legally harvested during the 1978 season. According to Callagban, "we anticipate receiving final approval from ESSA on Sep- tember 1, 1978. Until then, no ginseng collected in this state can be exported out of the country. This, however, does not prevent authorized dealers from selling it within the United States." Dealers can obtain a permit application by contacting Director, Department of Natural Resources, 1800 Washington Street, East, Charleston, W. Va. 25303, 304-348-3381. There is no charge for this permit. Heavyweight champ The Sperry New Holland Model 890 forage harvester is built for the big crop.
