Democratic Party officials called on Chairman Paul G. Kirk Jr. to mediate a bitter dispute between Chicago Mayor Harold Washington and Cook County, Ill., party leaders. The party's executive committee, meeting in Washington, also warned rebellious Chicago Democrats against supporting a Republican mayoral candidate if Washington wins the Democratic primary next Feb. 24. The dispute reflects the continuing rivalry between Mayor Washington and Cook County Democratic leader Edward R. Vrdolyak. The mayor is expected to be challenged by former Mayor Jane M. Byrne and possibly Vrdolyak in the primary.
