So did Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and Ulysses S. Grant. But George Washington had the most noble lineage of all American presidents. The experts of Burke r s Peerage, the 150-year-old reference work on England's nobility, said Wednesday 13 U.S. presidents were descended from kings. Burke said Nixon is a direct descendant of King Edward III. He's 20th in the line of descent from Edward III, who died in 1377, and he's related to Queen Elizabeth II. The reference book said Lincoln was descended from one king and Washington from four. But James Monroe had a whopping nine kings in his family tree. "Similar claims can be made by thousands of others," said Hugh Montgomery-Massing- berd, editor of Burke's Presidential Families of the United States of America, a 676-page reference book being published next week. One is the editor —22nd in line from Edward III. Another is David Williamson, who worked for seven years to compile the new book's presidential genealogies. The $39 book is largely a serious study of the 37 American Adventurer Faces Big Challenge ORLEANS, Mass. (UPI) Allen Chadburn, clad in heavy alpine gear and wooly boots, crawled into his 8'/4-foot boat "Dream" Wednesday and set sail for points east, hoping eventually to reach Portugal, 2,780 miles away. Chadburn, 29, married and the father of two children, said he expects to arrive in Europe in about 60 days. The Dream departed from Priscilla Landing, Cape Cod's outermost landing. It is equipped with a radio that has a range of 25 miles and another SOS radio device. "I'm excited and I have no question that the boat can stand the trip. I know I can make it," said the Chadburn, of Somerset, Mass. Chadburn said the single- masted fiberglass vessel had enough additional room for 60 days of supplies. The supplies are all canned goods, which he will eat cold to avoid a chance of fire. "I have no fear," said Natalie Chadburn, his wife and partner in a Somerset real estate agency. She was at quayside with their children, James, 5, and Joseph, 9, as Chadburn pushed off in his green boat. Wild rice is not really rice but an aquatic grass, not even closely related to common rice. presidents and their families. It lists every descendant of all presidents and each president's brothers and sisters and their descendants. An appendix of presidential family trees stretching far into the past shows the White House packed with presidents counting royal forebearers. Jefferson, Grant and William Howard Taft were all descended from David I of Scotland, who died in 1153. James Garfield had the earliest royal ancestor traced —King Henri I of France, who died in 1060. Lincoln, Washington, Monroe and John Quincy Adams all numbered the same king among their forebearers — Edward I of England, who died in 1307. "But Washington's lineage is the most spectacular of all the presidents," Montgomery-Ma- ssingberd said. "It goes back to 1180 at least and probably even further, to the kings of Scotland. It is a lineage the grandest peer would be proud of." President Ford, Montgomery- Massingberd added, has no known royal blood.

So he rose with his ace of hearts. Then he made the book play of the jack of clubs as written up many times in this and other bridge columns. This is the only club he could have led to bring in four club tricks, but declarer had no defense against it. Actually, he covered with the queen. East took his ace; led a club back to West's king and scored the two final tricks with the 10 and seven. J The bidding has been: 11 West North East South . By Oswald & James Jacoby Who says that the so-called "Book Hands" don't come up all the time? Here is one from the European championships. North scraped the bottom of the barrel with his two-club response, but felt that he had to make another bid. South might well have rested in three spades, but he did go on to three notrump. Manuel Antunes of Portugal made his normal opening lead of the four of diamonds. South won in his hand, led a heart to dummy's king and a spade back to his jack.
