SAYS BODYGUARD 'There'll Never Be Another Elvis' TAMPA, Fla. (AP) When E.M. "Bitsy" Mott started working for Elvis Presley the future rock-and-roll king was the fifth act on a bill headed by comedian Andy Griffith. "But it seemed that every time he was on stage, it was encore after encore," says Mott, who spent 15 years as Presley's bodyguard. The last time Mott saw the aging superstar was when Presley made a 1975 appearance in Tampa. "I went backstage, and when I walked out, I said to my wife, 'Elvis is dying.' He looked so much like his mother did just before she died." Talking from his Tampa home, Mott said he'd been "in a fog" since he heard of Presley's death earlier Tuesday. But moments later the stories came swiftly as Mott recalled the music legend. "I saw him all kinds of ways, but there was nothing that I ever saw or heard, that would be detrimental to that boy," he said. Mott said he was responsible for arranging travel between cities and security for the star, for screening Presley's calls and handling any other personal problems that might occur on the road. "Ij;emember one time," he said. "We were flying from Texas to one of our one-night-ers and the pilot got lost in this plane we chartered. "I was riding co-pilot, but I couldn't fly, and the pilot said to me, 'Here, you watch the plane while I check this map.' Well, Elvis was sitting back there and I turned around and he was smiling." When the plane finally landed, Mott said, Presley "walked up to me and said, 'Bitsy, you know what I'm thinking?' And I said, 'Yeah, you want me to get us on a commercial flight.'" For years afterward, Presley never flew, chosing cars or trains as transporation to concert appearances, Mott said. Mott also recalled the times he played bit parts in three Presley movies: "Loving You," "Wild in the Country" and "G.I. Blues." "I remember one time Elvis knew I couldn't sing I was in a group singing thing, and he looked over his shoulder at me and just bust out laughing. They had to reshoot that whole scene." Mott left Presley in 1972, because, "I had my own family and wanted to stay at home more." Presley was unique, Mott said. "There's never be another one like him another Elvis or another career like Elvis' - as long as the world is here." FLOWERS "For all occasions.' Cinii'tlonc '3lont 911 S.

Kirk Alyn, who played Superman in 30 movie serials in the late 1940s and early 1950s is now 66 years old and drawing Social Security checks. "But I feel like I'm 39," the actor said. "And I wish they would stop offering me the same roles." For years after producers stopped making the serials, Alyn found it difficult to get acting parts. Movie-makers felt the public wouldn't believe him as anybody other than Superman. "Now I get offers, but it's only for detective roles," he lamented. "I 'just turned down two such parts.
