A recent Gallup poll shows that 73 percent or almost three-fourths of the /American people believe Richard Nixon was involved in Watergate or the coverup. Does this mean that the U.S. Congress feels the same way and wants Nixon removed from office? --Stephen Adams, Oakland, Calif. A. In a general way Congress belatedly reflects U.S. public opinion. That does not mean, however, that 75 percent of the Congress wants Nixon removed from office at this time. It may mean that 75 percent of the Congress believes Nixon was involved in the Watergate coverup--two separate matters. At this writing, national polls reveal that 25 to 27 percent of the American people remain hard-core Nixon supporters. A Gallup poll taken in May showed that of the Americans surveyed, 48 percent believe President Nixon should be removed from office; 37 percent believe he should not, and 15 percent have no opinion on the subject.

Is there any truth to her claims?--D.L, Philadelphia, Pa. A. Blaze Starr (real name --Sissie Fleming) has written her autobiography.. Blaze Starr--My Life Story as told to Huey Perry published by Praeger. In her book Blaze details her spicy relationships with Long and Rizzo. If she is not telling the truth, Mayor Rizzo may sue her and her publishers for libel.' STRIPPER BLAZE STARR Q, If former Gov. John Connally of Texas has become a dedicated Republican, why does he hire a Democratic law firm like Williams, Connolly Califano to defend him in the dairy operators' scandal in which allegedly he is involved with Jake Jacob- sen?--P.E., Alexandria, Va. A. If Gov. Connally were sick, presumably he would hire the best physician he could get without inquiring into the doctor's politics. He feels the same way about lawyers. He obviously believes that the Washington, D.C., law firm in which the senior partners are Edward Bennett Wiliiams, Paul R. Connolly and Joseph Califano, is the best qualified to defend him in his alleged involvement with jacobsen in the milk operators' scandal. Q. The real reason, please, why Willy Brandt resigned as Chancellor, of West Germany? Wasn't it because he was afraid his private life would be revealed rather than because his aide Gunter Guillaume, turned out to be a Communist spy?--F.R. Becker, Cincinnati, Ohio. A. Brandt gave three reasons for his resignation: (1) He let top secret papers fall into the hands of Guil- laume even though he knew Guillaume was suspected of being an East German spy; (2) He felt he would hinder Bonn's relationships with East Germany and the Warsaw Pact nations; (3) He was afraid various aspects of his private life, particularly his campaign travels during which he was interviewed by female journalists who found him fascinating, would be drawn into speculation.
