Most Guatemalans went to bed

Mario Sandoval Alarcon, the

vestigators said Saturday they
were dissatisfied with a 19-year-old
secretary's story of the brutal
death of her socialite roommate.
Elaine Soule of Freeport, Long
tsland, N.Y., according to police,
said she killed Catherine Elvins,
19-year-old daughter of Dr. Rich
ard C. Elvins of Seattle, because
she wanted a $160 check made out
to the dead girl.
Miss Elvins, a secretary and stu
dent at San Francisco State Col
lege, was found Thursday with
seven stab wounds in her chest.
She also had been beaten with a
Police said Elaine told them she
killed her freind Wednesday morn
ing. She is to be arraigned on a
murder charge Monday.
"We're less and less interested
in the check as a motive, and
more and more interested in the
quarrels," Chief Deputy Dist. Atty.
W. Howard Hartley said. He added
Elaine had money in the bank,
and did not have the debts she
said she had.
A neighbor, Mrs. Ruth Gray,
said she heard the girls "arguing
all the time." She said she did
not know any reason for the spats.
Dr. Elvins and his wife arrived
Friday to make funeral arrange
ments. "It's unbelievable." the doctor
said. "We'd met the girl; she
stayed with us once in Seattle,
but we didn't know much about
her. We just can't believe it."
Ike To Sign UN
Atomic Energy
Agency Pact
Eisenhower will sign a pact Mon
day afternoon taking the United
States into an 80-nation inter
national atomic energy agency. It
is an outgrowth of the Eisen
hower 1953 atoms for peace pro
posal. American officials hope that by
that time either Great Britain or
Canada also will have ratified the
agreement, thus allowing the
United States t o become the
power to put the atoms for peace
pool into effect.
Twenty nations so far have
ratified, but Russia is the only
one of the five major powers to
have done so. The treaty becomes
operative only when 18 nations
ratify, including three of the five
major powers. The five are the
United States, Britain, France,
