A new school edition of Gueth's classic,
“Herman und Dorothea,” lias just been
published by Allyn A Bacon, of Boston.
The editor ia Miss Julianne A. Roller, of
tbe Franklin High School in Portland.
’‘Hermann und Dorothea” was the
model for Longfellow’s “ Evangeline.”
It is the product of the genius of the
mature Goethe and ranks as his lx-st
work next to "Faust.'’ It gives a beau
tiful picture of sturdy German |>easant
life and has for its background the hard-
shi|>s of those who tied from the fury of
the mob in the French Revolution.
The editor. Miss Koller, has taught
German and I.alin at Franklin High
School sincejthe school was opened in
February, 1914. She has a bachelor of
arts and a master of arts degree from
the University of Wisconsin, and is a
memlM-r of the honorary fraternity of
Phi Beta Kappa.
Before coming to
