·/free to the-public. ·'·i Among newly opened exhibits of Special interest this Bicentennial 'year is "Challenge of Independ- ."."ence, 1776-1815." w h i c h traces ^American maritime history from khe Revolutionary War through the "i\Var of 1812 in a chronological se- ipies of displays of ship models, his. itoric maps, paintings, carvings. · and period artifacts. The exhibit is 'located in the Stillman B u i l d i n g 'i alongside Mystic Seaport's well- ·'· known figurehead collection. : · Nearby in the North Boat Shed is ·'·-; another new Bicentennial exhibit ·! featuring General Lafayette, a Sea: port-built replica of the oldest ex-^ isting American small boat. The or; i g i n a l c r a f t , an 18th c e n t u r y · Whitehall pulling boat American 1 Star, is preseved today in France. d Mystic Seaport has constructed the ' historic replica and created this exhibit explaining its significance and the historic replica construction process. Beginning this summer, visitors may enter the restored cabin of the Down-Easter, Benjamin f". 1'ack- ard. Entering the officers' living quarters of the 1883-built ship, visitors will see the cabin's elegant veneers, intricate design motifs, plush furnishings, and accessories. A Seaport staff interpreter will explain the complexity of the cabin's restoration and speak about life aboard 19th century passenger and cargo carrying vessels. Also, a new gallery exhibit of paintings, watercolors, and prints by two contemporary English marine painters, John Stobart and Sir Charles Madden, will be shown in the R. J. Schaefer Building, June 10 to August 7. During the mid-summer weekend of July 31-August 1, many of the East Coast's finest pre-1940 sail and power yachts will cruise up the Mystic River for the Seaport-based Antique and Classic Boat Rendez- vous, sponsored by the Port Elco Assoc. and the Four Town Bicentennial Committee of Stonington. North Stonington. Groton. and Ledyard. The boats will be wharved at Mystic Seaport, and at nearby marinas for public viewing. Later t h a t week, t h e a n n u a l Coast Guard Day at Mystic Seaport, August 5. will bring the entering class of U.S. Coast Guard Academy cadets to Mystic. This year the Academy celebrates its 100th anniversary, and to honor the occasion, the museum has planned a series of events about the historical beginnings of the Coast Guard, its growth and development. For visitors" convenience, there is a fast-food concession on the museum grounds, the Seamen's Inne Restaurant nearby for dining, several motels in the area and over- n i g h t docking accomodations at Seaport wharves, by reservation, for yachtsmen. Mystic Seaport Museum Store, just outside the museum's south entrance gate, has a completely new look for 1976. Following major revovations, the store opened in June with a book and print shop, museum reproductions department, a toy shop, and gourmet shop, men's and women'? boutiques, a crystal and pewter shop and a weave shop where coverlets, tea cloths, potholders. and other items woven according to 19th century patterns by Mystic Seaport staff on antique looms are sold.

Admission is $4.25 for adults, 51.75 for children, ages 6-15, and a two-day ticket is available at $6 for adults and $2.25 for children. Children under six are admitted free, and reduced rates are available for senior citizens, students and groups with reservations. Mississippi Qeeen Needs No Compass CINCINNATI-The Mi**isiiii Queen carries 500 passengers and a crew of 125 on seven night cruises, will travel more than 35,000 miles each year, and cost over $20 million to build. But she doesn't have a compass. She's a Mississippi riverboat. And as one pilot put it: "The river twists and turns so : much, a compass would hit 1.980 points every five minutes. If a boat gets off course, she could wind up in a cotton field." : R i v e r p i l o t s steer by dead re- · ckoning u s i n g Coast G u a r d l i g h t ; m a r k e r s , c h a n n e l buoys. U. S. Corps of Engineer n a v i g a t i o n c h a r t s , a 810,000 r a d a r u n i t , and their own knowledge of the river. The latter is perhaps the most : important element. To obtain a U. S. Coast Guard license for a given , stretch of the river, a pilot must d r a w a detailed m a p of if from ; memory. He must include every ; twist and turn in the river as well as all buoys, bridges, light mar; kers. locks and dams, sandbars. lioat docks, submerged cables, and ; other n a v i g a t i o n a l elements. In ; short, he must know the river by ] heart--just as Mark Twain did. : When the boat is operating in a ] "shutout fog." the pilot uses radar \ and a swing meter. The radar de; scribes the location of the boat, the ·J banks of the river and the various ; State Magazine. June .'.'/. 1976 river markers. The swing meter tells the pilot how much he has altered his course. The Mississippi Qnei-n is the first overnight steamboat built since her sisterboat the Di-lm Qurcii in 1926. She departs on her maiden voyage July 27. an 18 night round trip from her home port of Cincinnati to New Orleans. Her major ports are Pitts- b u r g h , L o u i s v i l l e . St. P a u l . St. Louis, and New Orleans. She is owned and operated by The Delta Queen Steamboat Co. of Cincinnati.
