IT IS ONE of the great oddities of pop culture.The official White House photo of Richard Nixon shaking hands with Elvis Presley in 1970 remains the most requested picture from the archives of the Library of Congress, a postcard from the outer vestibule of weird.It shows the business-suited Nixon, a tight smile wired across his face, gripping palms with a bleary-eyed King of Rock and Roll, the high-collar of Presley's shirt lapping over a black jacket draped across his shoulders, a gold belt buckle above his fabled TC pelvis gleaming like a giant waffle.

DON'T ASK FOREVER : MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH ELVIS. By Joyce Bova, as told to William Conrad Nowels. Kensington Books. 386 pages. $20HIS WAS a love that could destroy the object of its desire.She, Joyce Bova, was the object of Elvis Presley's desire for three years, beginning in 1969 when they met in Las Vegas. The book, "Don't Ask Forever: My Love Affair with Elvis," is her version of "The Victor King and I."It is corny, verbose and self-conscious. To make matters worse, the ghostwriter, William Conrad Nowels, never saw an adjective he didn't like.

Elvis was here.His limo idled outside in the apartment's parking lot, now filled with the bumper-stickered compact cars of techno types ("If this were an F-16, we'd be home by now"; "My other car is a jet"). He walked through the doorway with its teddy bear welcome mat, visited the bathroom with the poodle picture on the wall and seemed to appreciate the utter normalcy of it all."You've made a beautiful home here, Joyce," said the man from that monument to Southern Baroque, Graceland.Joyce Bova still lives here, in an apartment-gone-condo complex in one of those Washington suburbs that is home to so many of the busy worker bees who, mostly anonymously, keep the federal government churning along.

A new policy for selecting the student graduation speakers at Archbishop Spalding High School has the school's top grade earners crying censorship.Upset by what students and school officials have called an inappropriate speech by last year's valedictorian, the faculty ended this year a long-standing tradition of naming the two top seniors valedictorian and salutatorian and having them speak at the senior awards banquet and graduation Mass.Instead, they asked the top 10 percent of seniors at the 800-student Catholic high school in Severn to audition for speaker honors.

EVEN THOUGH it will 30 years this month since I graduated from high school, I sympathize with John Bova, first in his class at Severn's Archbishop Martin Spalding High School.Burned by last year's valedictorian, who delivered a speech that criticized the school and the Roman Catholic religion, Spalding Principal Barbara H. Schwitzer announced this year that the No. 1 and No. 2 graduates would no longer deliver the valedictory and the salutatory addresses at the senior awards banquet or the graduation Mass.
