6 THURS -' JUNE 7.5, 1964, Lake Chorles American Press Philadelphia Man Longesf Name in PHILADELPHIA "When somebody calls my name, I don't have any trouble finding out who they" mean." says the man who claims he has the longest last name in the United States—tffifi letters, plus 26 given names. "I like to be unique," says Hubert B. Wolfeschlegclstein- hausenbergcrdorff. "I don't like being part of the common herd." Hubert, 47, a Philadclphian of German descent, doesn't use his full name when signing documents—just- the first 35 letters. That's how he is listed with the John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance Co., which has to process his policy by hand. The company's giant 7074 computer stops dead when it comes to any identification beyond 35 letters. Hubert's Social Security card has the "shortened" version — the 44 letters, including Hubert B. — even though it takes up two lines. Hubert said in an interview that the Army used a clipped and Anglicized version of his monicker when he was drafted in 1942. They just wouldn't go for his full name, which he says is: Adolph Elaine Charles David Earl Frederick Gerald Hubert Irvin John Kenneth Lloyd Martin Nero Oliver Paul Quincy Randolph Sherman Thomas Uncas Victor William Xerxes Yan- cy Zeus Wolfeschlegelsteinhaus- cnbergcrdorff, Senior. The senior is to distinguish him from junior. What's in a name? In an admittedly loose translation, Hubert says: ft tolls a story of a wolf-killer, a resident of a stonehouse in a village, whose ancestors were conscientious shepherds whose sheep were well fed and carefully guarded against attack by ferocious enemies and whose ancestors 1,200,000 years before the first earth man, in a space ship made with tungsten and Claims fhe U.S. seven iridium motors and using light as a source of power, started a long journey acroSvS interstellar space, searching for a star around which was an inhabitable planet where they could establish a new race of intelligent mankind and where they would live long, happy lives and be free from attack by other intelligent from the outer space from whence they came. , Hubert, a linotype operator, j has a wife, Constance, and two ! sons, Hubert, etc., etc., Jr., and !

Scranton Predicts Defeat With Barry MIAMI, Fla. (AP)-Nomina- lion of Sen. Barry Goldwater for president would spell defeat for the Republican party this fall, says his chief rival, Gov. William W. Scranton. "It is sound judgment that his candidacy would set up our party for a defeat of major proportions," the Pennsylvania governor told a news conference Wednesday. "But if Sen.

"But there is such a thing as playing with odds so long that only the most optimistic partisan would have anything but a glimmer of hope.
