The National Archives is like a safe-deposit box for America's really important papers -- the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, the $7.2-million canceled check for the purchase of Alaska, the picture of Richard Nixon and Elvis Presley shaking hands in the Oval Office. Copies of that photo -- the president in his charcoal suit, the king of rock 'n' roll in his purple velvet cape -- are requested more than just about any of the archives' treasures, including the Constitution.

Elvis Presley is not dead. Instead, the King is going to be a TV series on ABC in the fall, the network is expected to announce this week. The network earlier this month gave the go-ahead for Priscilla Presley and two longtime friends of the singer, Rick Husky and Jerry Schilling, to shoot a pilot and three episodes of a half-hour dramatic series, "Elvis: Good Rockin," they said this weekend.

I see another article on a mass murderer and rapist, Dean Philip Carter (Part A, Jan. 29). And again I read the implication that he was always a bad kid. According to the article, he defied his parents and was a confirmed burglar by the time he was 14 or 15. Only in passing are his alcoholic parents mentioned and the fact that they shackled him to his bed to discipline him when he was 10 years old. We can only guess at the severe abuse he suffered throughout his childhood.

THREE DAYS AFTER HER former father-in-law, Vernon Presley, died in June of 1979, Priscilla Beaulieu Presley sat in a downtown Memphis office and tried to comprehend the sobering news she had just heard: Without drastic action, everything that Elvis Presley had left their daughter, Lisa Marie, could be lost. Even his beloved home, Graceland. Joseph A. Hanks, the Presley family accountant since 1969, is a conservative, soft-spoken man not given to dramatics. But the facts he had just outlined for Priscilla spoke for themselves: Income was dropping while expenses were rising, and at some point the lines would cross.

Two former associates of Elvis Presley this week condemned Lucy de Barbin's coming Elvis tell-all tome "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" as having "no basis in fact." Barbin alleges that she and the King had a long-term affair that produced a daughter. Presley's one-time personal aide Jerry Schilling said Elvis "would have had to have been Houdini to have had a relationship like that without my knowing about it."

Actor Michael St. Gerard was a last-minute replacement to star in the TV series "Elvis: The Early Years" after the first choice washed out. Five days before filming was to begin, the show's producers, Priscilla Presley and Jerry Schilling, checked the progress of the first-choice actor--whose identity they won't reveal--and were displeased. "We really knew then it wasn't going to work," Schilling told Us magazine. "We were getting desperate." They called in St.

Huntington Beach city officials Friday rejected the idea of a massive outdoor charity concert by the city pier, citing concerns over traffic, noise, litter and the city's liability in case of injury. Max Bowman, deputy director of the Community Services Department, said the city was approached a few weeks ago by representatives of Martin Public Relations of Tustin about a Labor Day concert featuring eight or nine bands, including the Beach Boys.

The concept itself is pretty bold. A weekly, half-hour dramatic series about Elvis Presley. In fact, there has never been a weekly television series based on a contemporary real-life character. But in March, ABC will introduce "Elvis," starring Michael St. Gerard, with Priscilla Presley as an executive producer. ABC showed an episode of the series to critics recently, and the show is one of the most culturally fascinating pieces of television created in some time.
