**Summary:**

[For the entire collection see Zbl 0742.00067.]\par In the first part some general results on Hecke algebras are recalled; the structure constants corresponding to the standard basis are defined; in the following the example of the commuting algebra of the Gelfand- Graev representation of the general linear group $GL(2,F)$ is examined; here $F$ is a finite field of $q$ elements; the structure constants are explicitly determined first for the standard basis and then for a new basis obtained via a Mellin-transformation. Using the character table of the group $GL(2,F)$ two identities envolving Gaussian sums over finite fields are obtained. One of them is a formal analogue of the classical Barnes' First Lemma; this lemma involves the classical gamma-function which is in analogy with the Gaussian sum function. Three more finite identities are given and several open questions are brought into discussion.\par Let us mention that meanwhile a parallel proof of the finite a!
