Do you see an "upper case" sz in GAUSS? I see only in the extreme case
an upper case long-s and final-s there.... ;-)

Seriously, no you don't need a "SS" character for doing the example
exactly as your intention is - that was actually the message ;-) Aside
from this it is really funny to find that authors who set Gau\ss
correctly are hard to find - usually they write Gauss anyway. 
BTW, his signature was written "Gau long-s final-s" - of course not
*every* font provides these...
