More than 18 years after the break-in, former presidential press secretary Ron Ziegler on Sunday once again found himself answering reporters' questions about Richard M. Nixon and Watergate. But gone was the combative, evasive style that was his trademark at the White House. In fact, Ziegler was much at ease Sunday at small news conference following a private 90-minute tour of the new Richard M. Nixon Library and Birthplace, smiling and shaking hands with reporters.

The 30-year mystery of "Deep Throat" ended last week with an anticlimax: Former FBI man W. Mark Felt was the anonymous source behind the Washington Post's Watergate scoop. A few obsessed observers were on record as suspecting that the 91-year-old G-man was the parking garage leaker who helped bring down President Nixon.
