HUNGARY All aboard for the other shore. Wagons, trucks, and pedestrians push onto a motorized ferry at Mohacs. Steamboat Kossuth, reminiscent of 19th-century Mis sissippi side-wheelers, churns upriver to Budapest. Behind schedule, the Americans caught a ride on the steamer from the capital to Mohacs. Near here 28,000 courageous Hungarians suffered defeat in 1526, when they audaciously attacked 300,000 Turks. Music by the mile: Mike Lewis, an enthu siastic musician, fingers the keys of his mel odica, a small lung-powered organ. Dave Donnelley steers along a stretch of river be low Esztergom, Hungary. A motorboat tows in tandem the American canoe, a Hungarian racing shell, and an Austrian kayak. High-stepping counselor improvises a dance with Dave Donnelley, to the delight of boys and girls at a Young Pioneer Camp near Esztergom. Mike twangs out rock-'n' roll music on his guitar.
