i ranked a big wheel in the under
i world since the bloody days of
AI Capone in the 19205. is dead.
The 69-year-old gang chief,
who once was Capone’s chief
j lieutenant and who reportedly
master-minded the gang's way
. to riches and political power,
; died last night. Death was at
tributed to a heart attack.
| Police were unable to confirm
immediately if Guzik died at his
South Side home or at the home
of a son-in-law. also on the
South Side.
Guzik, who in recent years
favored the name “Jack,” gray
haired, flabby and mild man
nered. was regarded as the top.
gambling boss in Chicago after
Capone abdicated. Capone left
I Chicago, at the request of the
| Federal Government, to serve 11
years in prison for income tax
I evasion.
And it was for income tax
evasion that Guzik met with his
■ only reversal in his many brushes
with the law in some 30 years.
He was sentenced in 1930, with
Capone, to serve five years in
: prison and fined $17,500 for
; evasion of more than (1 million
in income taxes for 1927-1929.
Served Over 3 Years
He fought the conviction for
two years before he started serv
! ing his sentence. He was in
\ Leavenworth Federal Prison for
three years and eight months.
•! Guzik was No. 10 on Chicago’s
i original list of 28 public enemies
compiled by the Chicago Crime
Commission in 1930. At that
time—the prohibition era—he
i was business manager of Ca
pone** enterprises—lllegal brew
eries, dog and race tracks, gam
bling aqd vice resorts.
While Capone's hoodlums re
sorted to guns and muscle to
! keep their many businesses oper
ating, Guzik never was known
, to carry a gun. The story is that
he was given the nickname
’Greasy Thumb" by the Capone
' mobsters who watched him count
huge bankrolls.
Sued Police Last Week
Guzik s name has been in the
public prints for years. He was
picked up innumerable times by
police for questioning about
» various crimes, particularly when
! a known hoodlum was slain in
gangland style.
Only last week Guzik filed
suit in Federal Court seeking to
'enjoin police from bothering
him. He charged police with
false arrests and asked $50,000
damages against seven mem
bers of the Police Department.
