Ask choreographer Jim Bates about the highlight of his career and he doesn't talk about his number with Fred Astaire in "Easter Parade." He talks about Clark Gable and the woman from Iowa. It was the '50s and Bates, a dancer-actor and USC student, had a part in "Run Silent, Run Deep" with Gable and Burt Lancaster. During a day of filming, the crew had some technical difficulty so the actors were asked to take a lunch break. Who does Gable invite to dine with him at a trendy Sunset Strip eatery?

Miami Dolphin coach Dave Wannstedt called it quits Tuesday midway through a dismal season that began with the retirement of running back Ricky Williams and has left the team with the NFL's worst record at 1-8. Defensive coordinator Jim Bates was promoted to interim coach. "As you might imagine, this was not a very easy decision from a personal standpoint, but I believe it is a proper decision at this time for being a professional," Wannstedt said. "Somebody has to accept the responsibility.

Admitting that his conduct toward female staffers was "sometimes inappropriate and unprofessional," a contrite Rep. Jim Bates (D-San Diego) apologized for his behavior and appealed for voters' forgiveness. "The kidding around and flirting that I did, while I didn't think it was wrong at the time, I now realize was not appropriate in some instances," he said.

'Tis the season when politicians get antsy over their prospects for reelection, so I was not at all surprised to find a franked flyer in my mailbox, addressed to "Resident" from my representative, Jim Bates. This was one of many that I have received from said Congressman Bates. Mostly they tell me what I already know: Bates is pro-Soviet-backed communist Sandinistas and is anti-military. But this time Bates demonstrated what I've long believed, that he cannot construct a sentence with coherent syntax.

As a Democratic incumbent in an overwhelmingly Democratic congressional district, Rep. Jim Bates (D-San Diego) "probably couldn't lose that seat even if he tried," a San Diego political consultant said last summer. "That district always was and always will be a Democratic district," consultant Nick Johnson said at the time. "For Bates or any other Democrat to lose it is almost unthinkable." As the 44th Congressional District race enters its final week, the unthinkable has become thinkable.

Former Rep. Jim Bates acknowledged Friday that he knowingly used the House bank's overdraft protection when he wrote four bad checks totaling $30,300 as loans to his reelection campaign on the eve of the 1990 Democratic primary.

Overdrafts totaling $170,685 by former Democratic San Diego Rep. Jim Bates are the highest so far of any former or current California representative involved in the House check-overdraft scandal. Bates' total, along with those of Duncan Hunter (R-Coronado) and Bill Lowery (R-San Diego), gives San Diego County the dubious distinction of having the top three California-based writers of bad checks in the House of Representatives.

Probably no one has kept a closer--and possibly more envious--eye on the rapid congressional celebrity achieved by new Rep. Randall (Duke) Cunningham than the man whom he unseated last November, former Rep. Jim Bates. Six weeks into a forced political retirement, Bates finds himself at a personal and professional crossroads, with a new career that has him dividing time between here and San Diego even as he contemplates a possible comeback bid for his old job.

To be told, at age 49, to find a new job, that your services are no longer needed in the business where you have worked for 20 years, would be, for anyone, a traumatic experience. When that humbling message is delivered in the most public way imaginable, as happens to an incumbent politician who loses an election, the resulting shock, depression and bitterness are magnified. For outgoing Rep.

Resulting in a net shift of only five votes, a recount of last month's 44th Congressional District was completed Friday, upholding Republican Randall (Duke) Cunningham's narrow defeat of Rep. Jim Bates (D-San Diego). By leaving Cunningham's victory intact, the recount by the San Diego County voter registrar's office removed one of Bates' two last-gasp efforts to retain the seat he has held since 1982. Bates' only remaining hope, which even he concedes is a slim one, for overturning his Nov.
