Knight and Sen. William F. Knowland yesterday teamed to turn back a challenge to their state party leadership by friends of Vice President Nixon. The Nixon partisans failed to get their candidate for party vice chairman elected at a GOP State Central Committee meeting. They denied Nixon authored the maneuver with an eye on the 1956 presidential race. 31 Seek Three Nebraska -has no less than 3! candidates — 24 Republicans and 7 Democrats — seeking nomina tions to three Senate seats.

He has been a carpenter in California the last four years. Taylor is opposed for the Democratic nomination for senator by Claude Burtenshaw, a college professor and state senator, and Alvin McCormack of Lewiston. Republican Senator Henry C. Dworshak has not campaigned against his only opponent, high school art teacher Les Lambson. Candidates for governor also will be named. Idaho's two House members are unopposed for re- nomination.

A few minutes later the fish began breaking water trying to shake the plug from its mouth. Tiring the bass lay on the surface.

Basking at Balboa Is Fun, But So Is Talking to The Foys By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (£)—And so I start another year's wanderings among the movie and TV stages, the bistros and the theaters in search of something worth relaying to you. Basking and boating at Balboa is fun, but so is watching the antics and listening to the mouthings of the stars. The most fun this week wa s with the Foys. First I watched Bob Hope and some talented kids impersonate one of vaudeville's greatest acts for "Eddie Foy and the Seven Little Foys." I talked to Charley, Mary and Madeleine, who are real-life Foys from the original act. Charley told me that none of them will be in the film, but one Foy will be represented by" voice. That's Eddie Jr., most famous of the second generation. He's now happily playing "The Pajama Game," the Broadway smash. At the beginning of the picture, Eddie will introduce the impersonators of his family. I couldn't even get away from the Foys when I was talking to Cary Grant. Few people remember it, but Grant was a vaudevillian. He toured the United States with an English acrobatic act as a lad. And he has good reason to remember the Foys. "I used to sign my breakfast bills at the hotel with the name of one of the Foy Brothers," he said. "Then I'd pocket the expense money myself. Old man Foy never worried about it; I guess he figured one of the boys at« two breakfasts. "That was a long time ago. I don't, recall the year, but I remem- ber we were on the same bill in Washington when President Wilson came to see the foys. I didn't get to meet him, but all the Foys did." I ran into still another Foy on the set of "Women's Prison," which Bryan is producing. He revealed that the family sold the rights to their story for $100,000.
