The Festival ship Campania, which was officially opened at Hull yesterday by the Lord Mayor (Alderman R. E. Smith) and will receive her first visitors this morning, will be visited during her stay on the Humber by many organised parties of school-children from the West Riding.
Particular attention is paid to engineering plastics, textiles, woodworking, glass and pottery among the industrial exhibits. Nor are those reponsible for the invention and development of power and communications forgotten.
Certainly the school parties will find fascination in the sea and shipping section. Here, in addition to many models of ships, there is a complete radar unit layout on which they will be able to watch shipping moving in the Humber.
Enviously, perhaps the youngsters will examine one of those small racing yachts which cram harbours and estuaries all round the coast.
Perhaps the major fascination of the flight deck will be its height. To port one can overlook an Ellerman liner in from Australia and a cargo vessel unloading. On the starboard side is the Humber, curling away to Grimsby and the sea.
