Austin American-Statesman B9 Democrat outpaces Republican in chief justice election funds By MIKE HAILEY American-Statesman Staff John Hill, Democratic candidate for chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court, collected almost $150,000 during the latest three-month campaign reporting period, bringing his total for the race to $630,000. Waco attorney John L. Bates, Hill's Republican opponent in the race, received $1,680 in contributions and lent his campaign $1,136 during the reporting period between June 30 and Sept. 27, according to campaign records filed this week. HILL RECEIVED $1,000 or more from each of 41 persons and political action committees.

Bates' two biggest contributions were $500 each from John Faulkner of Waco and the Pink Elephant Committee of the Midland Republican Women's Club. Hill, who easily defeated Justice Sears McGee in the May Democratic primary, began the period with a $12,105 surplus. The former attorney general and unsuccessful gubernatorial candidate reported contributions of $148,930 and expenditures of $32,488 for the period. Hill has spent more than $400,000 in his bid to succeed retir- ing Chief Justice Jack Pope. He spent more than $270,000 before the May primary.

Bates reported spending $2,816, the amount he raised and borrowed, during the three-month period. His contributions included $100 each. from R.J. Reagan, Dr. Norman Shipley, and E.W.

Fields all of Waco, and $50 from Dr. Fred Robertson of Waco. LAWYERS, DEVELOPERS, oilmen, car dealers, bankers, and political action committees pumped money into Hill's campaign. Donald Goldman of Dallas and David Perry of Corpus Christi each gave Hill $10,000 his two largest contributions. He received $1,500 each from Edward P.

Bass, Sid R. Bass, and Lee M. Bass, all of Fort Worth; $2,500 each from F.B. Goldman and Jack Ayres both of Dallas, and $5,000 from Wesley; West of Houston. The political arms of First City Bancorporation and the Texas Automobile Dealers were among the handful of political action committees that contributed to Hill.

Each gave him $1,000. If You Like the "Ralph Lauren Saturday, October 13, 1984 $199 Reg. 5420 Dialogue is puzzling in The Jigsaw Man' Review By PATRICK TAGGART American-Statesman Staff There are just too many pieces to The Jigsaw Man. Ostensibly a thriller about the heavily traveled spy circuit between Moscow and London, the new film directed by Terence Young from a screenplay by Jo Eisinger (book by Dorothea Bennett) is instead the talkiest movie of the year. Ninety percent of the "action" takes place over tea in beautifully furnished rooms.

If spy work were really like this, everybody would sign up. In this film, almost everyone has. This yarn about a British double agent (Michael Caine) trying to put a fast one over on the KBG and the British counterpart, MI6, has so many characters flitting in and out that it's almost impossible to re-t member who does what. Worse, they are forever rattling off important information, and the mind's ear rarely has enough time to digest it all. From what I can decipher, it in- IP volves a Soviet plot to secure a payroll list that identifies all British agents working in the Soviet Union.

To get the list, Caine's agent goes to England under false identity, but that is quickly detected by the English intelligence ministry headed by a lovably gruff Laurence Olivier. Susan George, so perfect for Straw Dogs of 1971 and so poorly used in everything since, plays the agent's daughter. Naturally, she gets drawn into the intrigue. By the time it's all over there are so many agents, double agents and multiple agents flailing pistols around that the best we can do is wait until the smoke clears and see who the good guys are. If you like puzzles, have at it.
