REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Chicago, Illinois) [Alderman William SHANNON - tells 17th ward workers about getting out the vote.] Daley's machine now serves Michael Bilandic, as it once did Daley, in return for patronage jobs. Acting mayor Bilandic was alderman in Daley's ward and follows in Daley's path in campaign. [BILANDIC - speaks of youth jobs program in city.] Strongest contender is alderman Roman Pucinski. In 1 of few campaign issues, Pucinski's supporters claim city workers harass them. Restaurant owner Wally Jaworski claims city worker stole operating permit. [JAWORSKI - says city workers frightened of consequences of not backing machine.] Others in Democrat race are Anthony River Martin-Trigona, Ellis Reid, Harold Washington and Edward Hanrahan. Only 1 in 5 Chicagoans votes Republican, but those in Republican primary are Dennis Block, Sammy Rayner, Frank Ranallo and George Manning.
