From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A former senator called for the mystery figure known as “Deep Throat” to unmask himself and throw new light on the scandal that led to Richard Nixon’s resignation as president. Howard Baker, who was vice chairman of the Senate Watergate Committee, said on NBC-TV’s “Meet the Press” that it would be a shame to leave the secrets of “Deep Throat” untold. Deep Throat was a super-secret source for Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s Washington Post reporting on Nixon’s efforts to cover up the scandal.
