In random interviews, many of Ihuse quil- ling eoniplained they were faligued. dis- enehanted and increasingly intolerant of the demands on their time and energy. "I'm tired of answering the damned tele- phone all weekend." Mrs. Ilansen said. Watergate and the erosion of public con- fidence in politicians Republicans and Democrats alike doubtless also weighs nil their minds, although few admitted it. A congressional survey last fall disclosed that congressmen ranked low in public favor, far behind local trash collectors. A Louis Harris poll last month indicated that even with a boost in confidence from the house impeachment proceedings, the public gave congress a negative rating by a 54-38 margin. "It's possible I might have stayed on a couple of more years if there had been no Watergate." said Hep. Howard W. Kobison (K-N.Y.i. why in resigning after 18 years. "This always was a demanding job. but now it has become a mean and tough as well as demanding job." Says Hep. Craig Hosmer. "It's just not fun here anymore." Hosmer, senior Republican on the house interior committee, said It was very im- pressive being a freshman congressman. "Init after IE years yon get jaded." especially as a Republican in a Demoeralic-cnnlrnllod congress. Can't Get Promotion "I've been here vears and I can't gel a promotion." he said.

As an Ohio slate legislator, he said, "I saw con- stituents often. I was close to them, but I'm not close to them out here." Hep. Harold H. Collier second- ranking Republican on the ways and means committee who came to congress IS years ago. agrees. "One of the sad things 1 experienced as my tenure got longer was thai congress was in session so long that most members find it difficult to maintain a rapport with their district. There is a great deal lost in the per- sonal touch." lie said. "There is a frustration here." said 71- year-old diet Ilolifield a Id-year veteran, chairman of the house government operations committee and former chairman of the joint atomic energy committee. "I'm talking mainly about dealing with the senate." llolifield said. "My committee sends them legislalion like the consumer protection act and the senate committee al- lows a bunch of Nader-type amendments and it gels filibustered to death on the senate floor." Rep.
