CLAIMS HE HAS SOLVED PROBLEM Dr. Krieger Reports Finding Perfect Number of More Than 19 Digits. CHICAGO, UP)--Dr. Samuel U. Kreiger laid down his pencil and paper Thursday and claimed he had solved a problem that had baffled mathematicians since Euclid's day-the finding of a perfect number of more than 19 digits.

Dr. Krieger's perfect number contains 155 digits. Here it is: 26, 815, 615, 859, 885, 194, 199, 148, 049, 996, 411. 692, 254, 958, 731. 641,.184, 786, 755, 447, 122, 887, 443, 528, 060, 146, 978, 161, 514, 511, 280, 138, 383, 284, 395, 055, 028, 465, 118, 831, 722, 842, 125, 059, 853, 682, 308. 859, 384, 882, 528, 256.
