  1. Man Friday

Early one morning Crusoe saw thirty savages (野人) dancing round the fire, moving their spears (矛) and other weapons (武器). As he was watching, the savages dragged two prisoners out of the canoes (独木舟). They immediately knocked one of the prisoners down and killed him. The other one was left standing by himself for a few minutes, until they were ready for him. This second prisoner saw his chance to escape (逃跑). He started to run away from them and ran fast along the sands towards where Crusoe was watching.

Three of the savages ran after the prisoner. An inlet (水湾) of the sea lay between him and Crusoe. When he came to the water, the prisoner dived in and began to swim quickly across. Two savages followed him in the water. The third one went back.

At this moment Crusoe decided to rescue (救) the prisoner. Carrying his two guns he ran down the hill towards the two savages. The first one he knocked down with his gun. The second one was about to shoot at Crusoe with a bow and arrow, so Crusoe shot him dead.

The prisoner who was running away stopped and stood still. He was frightened by the noise of Crusoe’s gun. Crusoe called to him and made signs for him to come nearer. The man came a little nearer and stopped; a few more steps he knelt on the ground, as if to say “Thank you” to Crusoe for saving him. At last, he came close to Crusoe and knelt down again. He placed his head on the ground and placed Crusoe’s foot on it. This was to show he was Crusoe’s servant forever.

But there was more work to do. The savage whom Crusoe had knocked down was not killed. He was sitting up on the ground. Crusoe pointed his gun at him, ready to shoot him. But Crusoe’s savage made a sign which meant “Give me your gun or sword.” Crusoe put the sward into his hands. Then he ran to his enemy and with one blow cut off his head.

After this the savage made a hole in the sand, and buried the two bodies.

Then Crusoe led his new friends across the island to his cave. He gave him bread to eat and water to drink. Crusoe showed him a pile of straw and gave him blanket. The savage felt so thankful.

Crusoe decided to call him “Friday” because he saved him on that day. Since then, Friday became Crusoe’s loyal (忠诚的) and obedient (顺从的,恭顺的) servant, follower (侍从;随从), and friend that is how the term “man Friday” has come into use. And now in American English, a “girl Friday” usually refers to a very dependable and helpful female (女性的) office worker, especially a secretary.

  1. Poor and Rich

 

It isn’t strictly true that one half of the world is rich and the other half is poor. It is one-third that is rich and two-thirds that are very poor. People in the rich third don’t realize the huge difference between them and the other thirds. A very simple example is that a dog or a cat in North America eats better than a child in the poorer countries. A fisherman in South America may be catching fish which is made into pet (宠物) food and yet his own children are not getting enough protein (蛋白质) for their bodies to develop properly. Although a lot of the world’s natural resources like oil come from these poorer countries, we in the richer countries are properly using sixty times as much of these resources as a person in Asia or Africa. The richer countries are in  position to decide what kind of prices they are prepared to pay for these natural resources. In some cases the prices have gong down. In others they have remained steady. But the prices the richer countries get for their own exports have continued to rise. So they are getting richer and richer and the poorer countries are getting poorer.

  1. The writer says that the number of the rich people is __________.
    1. the same as that of the poor people in the world
    2. smaller than that of the poor people in the world
    3. greater than that of the poor people in the world
    4. becoming greater and greater
  2. According to the writer there is a great difference _________.
    1. between the rich and the poor
    2. between men and animals
    3. between a fisherman and his children
    4. between Asia and Africa
  3. The fish the South American fishermen catch ___________.
    1. goes to the table of the rich in North America
    2. is the only food for their children
    3. becomes animal food in richer countries
    4. is sold at a fairly high price
  4. According to this passage which of the following is true?
    1. The richer countries are getting poorer
    2. The poorer countries are getting richer.
    3. The richer countries have been treated unfairly
    4. The poorer countries have been treated unfairly
  5. Which of the following is not true according to the passage?
    1. The people of the poorer countries raise that price of oil sixty times higher.
    2. The people of the poorer countries use less natural resources than the people in the richer countries
    3. The people of the poorer countries can not decide the prices of their natural resources
    4. Some poorer countries are rich in natural resources

44. The Missing Dollar

 

Mr. knight was the manager of a hotel in Springfield. One weekend all of the hotels in the city were full because there was a large meeting. On  Friday night, three men came into the hotel and asked for rooms. Mr. Knight explained that because of the meeting, there were no rooms ready for use. The men were very unhappy because they had no place to stay.

Mr. Knight wanted to help them. He remembered that Room 413, a very small room, was empty. He asked the men if they would share a room. The three men said they would.

Mr. Knight told them that the room would be $ 30. $ 10 for each man. Each man gave him $ 10, and then they went up to the room.

Mr. Knight soon began to feel guilty (内疚的) “Thirty dollars is a lot to ask as a price for that small room,” he thought. “Even if three is a meeting, I shouldn’t take advantage of (利用) these men.”

He called his assistant over and said, “Here’s $ 5. Bring it to the men in Room 413. I asked them too much money for their room.”

The assistant took the money. While he was on the way to Room 413, he started to think. “How can three men divide $ 5? I’ll give each of them only $ 1 and I’ll keep $ 2. The men will be happy to get anything back. I will make a little money and Mr. Knight will never know.” So, the assistant returned $ 1 to each man.

Each man had at first paid $10. After the assistant returned $ 1 to each one, each man actually paid only $ 9. There were three men. $ 9 × 3 = $ 27. The assistant kept $ 2. $27 + 2 = $ 29.

A man heard that a certain government department wanted a clerk, so he wrote and asked for the position. But while he was waiting for an answer, a friend of his introduced him to the head of the department, who at once gave him the job.

Several months later, while the man was working in the department, he got a letter which had been sent on to him from his old address. This letter said:

46.  Rice

Rice is one of the most important foods of the human race. Perhaps it is consumed(消费、消耗) in Asia more than in any other part of the world. More rice has to be produced(生产), since there are large increases in population in countries where it is eaten.

There are three groups of rice-eaters in the world. The biggest group is that of those who live on rice. Most of them live in the Far East. China is the biggest of all the countries in which people live on rice.

The next group is made up of people who eat rice from time to time for a treat(请客款待). They live in the towns and cities of West Africa, parts of Latin America, and Asia. Most of them have come from places where little rice is consumed.

The third group belongs to the people who live in countries in Europe and North America, where rice is eaten only as a special dish. To them rice is just something added to the menu(菜单、菜肴).

Most kinds of rice have grains that are from 1/5 to 2/5 of an inch long. Many people like the long grain rice better, and so its price is higher in the word market. The short or round grain rice, which becomes sticky(粘性的) when cooked, is preferred in Japan, Korea and parts of China.

Rice has as much nutriment(营养物) as wheat, corn and potatoes, but like them, it is not a complete food. Other foods must be eaten to make up for what is lacking(缺少) in rice, mainly protein(蛋白质). So the people whose main food is rice must always be careful as to what to add to their rice in order to maintain(获得)health.

Food has to be made tasty so that it may be digested(消化) well, and this is the maim reason why rice is polished(擦磨、搓) before cooking. But it loses much of it vitamins(维生素) and minerals(矿物质) through polishing.

People began to pay attention to this problem in the early part of the twentieth century, when some scientists thought of adding vitamins to rice. As a result, we now have what is called “enriched rice”(营养米).

They grabbed the opossum’s neck with a pair of pliers (钳子). He thought the dog was biting him. So he played dead. His act was good----he looked dead all right.

50. The Nobel Prize

 

A Nobel Prize is considered by most people to be one of the highest international honors a person can receive. As you know, the prizes were started by a Sweden called Alfred Nobel. Alfred Nobel was born in  Stockholm (斯德哥尔摩) , the capital of Sweden, and lived from 1833 to 1896.

Alfred Nobel was a chemist and inventor. He made two important inventions, and so he became very rich. Although he was rich, Nobel was not a happy man. He never married or had children. Also, he was a sick man a large part of his life. Nobel died at the age of sixty-three. When he died, he left a fund of $ 9,000,000. The money was to be used in giving prizes to those who made outstanding (杰出的;卓越的) achievements in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature (文学), and the promotion (促进) of the world peace.

The first Nobel’s Prizes were given on December 10, 1901, five years after Nobel’s death. Many famous people all over the world have been given Nobel Prizes for their achievements. Albert Einstein was one of them.

Each prize has three parts. The first part is a gold medal. Second, a winner of a Nobel Prize is given a diploma (证书、文凭) saying that he has been given the prize. The third part of the prize is a large amount of money---about $ 40,000.

Often a prize is given to just one person, but not always. Sometimes a prize is shared. It might be given to two or more people who have worked together. It is also sometimes true that a prize is not given at all if there is no outstanding achievement. In 1972, for example, no Nobel Peace Prize was given. It is the Nobel Foundation (诺贝尔基金会) in Stockholm that decides whether to give the prize or not.
