  • Notes 
    • Adelaide E Fox literally married the boy next door. As the 1920 Census shows, she at age 16 was living at 14 Mason Street, while Louis C. Hess, age 18, was at 44 Mason Street. Indeed they are on the same page in the 1920 census. Ultimately, I guess, they were not on the same page. In any case, she eventually married William Deutsch.

      Where I Stand -- Hank Greenspun: 'There can be no compromises with the underworld'
      A POLITICAL titled "Naughty Naughty" feature Joeseph McCarthy and Richard Nixon. The cartoon appeared in the Nov. 4, 1952 edition of the Las Vegas Sun. SUN FILE PHOTO
      Note to readers: This column by Sun founder Hank Greenspun appeared on Feb. 21, 1952.
      ...
      Story: Sen. Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin will address a Las Vegas audience at War Memorial auditorium in the City Hall building, one week from tonight -- Oct. 13, it was announced yesterday by Mrs. Adelaide Deutsch, president of the Women's Republican club which is sponsoring his appearance here. ... An old-fashioned torchlight parade down Fremont street is set for 7:30, with the speaking program at War Memorial set for 8 p.m. ... The Wisconsin senator will speak on "Corruption and Communism."
      October 1952 -- McCarran sends Sen. Joe McCarthy, R-Wis., to Las Vegas to bait Hank Greenspun. In a public speech, McCarthy calls Hank an "ex-communist." He refers to the Sun as "The Daily Worker." Hank chases him off the podium.
      February 1954 - The Sun begins a seven-part series titled, "Is Senator McCarthy a Secret Communist?" The U.S. postmaster general is asked to yank the Sun's second-class mailing permit. Hank is indicted for "tending to incite murder or assassination" of McCarthy. Later in the year he is acquitted.
