36.      The survey about childhood in the Third World shows that the struggle for survival is long and
hard. But in the rich world, children can   36   from a different kind of poverty — of the spirit.
   37  , one Western country alone now sees 14, 000 attempted suicides ( 自杀 ) every year by
children under 15, and one child   38   five needs psychiatric (心理) advice.
      There are many good things about   39   in the Third World. Take the close and constant
relation between children and their parents, relatives and neighbours for example. In the West, the
very nature of work puts distance between   40   and children. But in most Third World villages
mother and father do not go miles away each day to work in offices.    41    , the child sees
mother and father, relations and neighbours working   42   and often shares in that work.
     A child   43   in this way learns his or her role through joining in the community's   44  :
helping to dig or build, look after animals or babies -- rather than   45   playing with water and
sand in kindergarten, keeping pets   46   playing with dolls.
     These children may grow up with a less oppressive sense of space and time than the   47
children. Their sense of days and time has a lot to do with the change of seasons and positions of
the sun or the moon in the sky. Children in the rich world,    48   , are provided with a watch as
one of the   49   signs of growing up, so that they can   50   along with their parents about
being late for school times, meal times, bed times, the times of TV shows …
     Third World children do not usually   51   to stay indoors, still less in highrise apartments
(公寓) . Instead of dangerous roads, "keep off the grass" signs and "don't speak to strangers",
there is often a sense of   52   to study and play. Parents can see their children outside rather
than observe them   53   from ten floors up.
        54   , twelve million children under five still die every year through hunger and disease.
But childhood in the Third World is not all   55

Scientific experiments can sometimes go wrong and when they do the results may range from
the disastrous to the troubling. One such experiment took place in South America about fifty years
ago. Whether its final consequences will cause serious damage or nothing more than a small trouble
still remains to be seen.
      The story began in 1956 when an American scientist working in Brazil decided to solve the
problem of increasing the productivity of that country's bees. He imported a very active type of Afri-
can bee from Tanzania and mated  (交配)  it with the more easy-going native variety to produce a
new kind of bees. The new bees worked harder and produced twice as much honey. It seemed that
Professor Kerr, for that was the scientist's name, had a total success on his hands.
      Then things began to go wrong. For some reason as yet unseen, but perhaps as a result of
something in their environment, the new bees began to develop extremely attacking personali-
ties. They became bad-tempered and easy to be angry, attacked the native bees and drove them
from their living places.
      But worse was to follow. Having taken over the countryside, the new bees, with their danger-
ous stings (叮) , began to attack its neighbours -- cats, dogs, horses, chickens and finally man
himself.                                                               A long period of terror began that has so far killed a great number of animals and about
                    150 human beings.
     This would have been bad enough if the bees had stayed in Brazil. But now they are on the
move, heading northwards in countless millions towards Central and North America, and moving at
the alarming speed of 200 miles a year. The countries that lie in their path are naturally worried
because it looks as if nothing can be done to stop them.

He's an old cobbler  (修鞋匠)  with a shop in the Marais, a historic area in Paris. When I
took him my shoes, he at first told me: “I haven't time. Take them to the other fellow on the main
street ; he'll fix them for you right away.”
     But I'd had my eye on his shop for a long time. Just looking at his bench loaded with tools and
pieces of leather, I knew he was a skilled craftsman  (手艺人).  “No,” I replied, “the other fel-
low can't do it well.”
      “The other fellow” was one of those shopkeepers who fix shoes and make keys “while-U-
wait” -- without knowing much about mending shoes or making keys. They work carelessly, and
when they have finished sewing back a sandal strap (鞋带) you might as well just throw away the
      My man saw I wouldn't give in, and he smiled. He wiped his hands on his blue apron ( 围
裙), looked at my shoes, had me write my name on one shoe with a piece of chalk and said,
“Come back in a week.”
      I was about to leave when he took a pair of soft leather boots off a shelf.
      “See what I can do?” he said with pride.  “Only three of us in Paris can do this kind of
work.. ”
      When I got back out into the street, the world seemed brand-new to me. He was something
out of an ancient legend, this old craftsman with his way of speaking familiarly, his very strange,
dusty felt hat, his funny accent from who-knows-where and, above all, his pride in his craft.
These are times when nothing is important but the bottom line, when you can do things any
old,way as long as it “pays”, when, in short, people look on work as a path to ever-increasing
consumption  (消费) rather than a way to realize their own abilities. In such a period it is a rare
comfort to find a cobbler who gets his greatest satisfaction from pride in a job well done.

【題組】60.Which of the following is true about the old cobbler.'?
(A) He was equipped with the best repairing tools.
(B) He was the only cobbler in the Marais.

(A) realize their abilities
(B) gain happiness
(C) make money

(A) craftsmen make a lot of money
(B) whatever you do, do it well
(C) craftsmen need self-respect
(D) people are born equal

44.64. C Members of the working class have blue-collar jobs. They are construction workers, truck drivers, mechanics, steel workers, electricians, and the like. What makes this class differ from the lower class is, first, longer periods of employment -- and therefore, more fixed incomes — and, second, employment in skilled or semiskilled (半熟练的 ) occupations, not unskilled ones. Although unemployment hits all levels of the American economy, including those of skilled and semi-skilled workers, it is most common at the bottom of the class structure and increasingly less common at each level upward. They consider themselves to be respectable and hard working and they look down upon members of the "lower" class, whom they often consider to be lazy, dis- honest, and too ready to exploit public assistance. -~ Most people in the working class have at least high school education. Many have some experi- ence of college ( especially community college), though few are college graduates. Unionization has helped the working class, but a rapidly changing economy and frequent periods of high unem- ployment make it difficult for most of its members to be able to increase their savings great- ly. Purchasing a house for people in this class is extremely difficult, although a certain percentage may receive houses from their parents. (Home-owning rises with social class. ) A greater number of the members of the working class take relatively little satisfaction in their jobs, because much of their work is ordinary and boring. As a result, many seek their main satis- faction in recreational ( 娱乐的) activities. Many members of this class would like to earn enough money to leave their jobs and start their own businesses, though few make it. Many place their expectations on their children, hoping that they at least will rise in the ladder of success, Ameri- can style. Which of the following is true about the working class.?
(A) They are often employed as skilled and semi-skilled workers.
(B) They are often offered jobs with high incomes.
(C) They are often considered lazy and dishonest.
(D) They are often exploited by the public.

45.65. The underlined word “hit” (paragraph 1 ) roughly means .
(A) strike with a blow
(B) have bad effects on
(C) break up

46.66. Most people in the working class .
(A) have difficulty increasing their savings greatly
(B) have at least some experience of college
(C) receive houses from their parents
(D) buy houses by themselves

47.67. Many members from the working class are not satisfied with their jobs because .
(A) they could not rise in the ladder of success
(B) they are not interested in their jobs
(C) they could not earn much money
(D) they are not their own bosses

How many people have I met who have told me about the book they have been planning to
write but have never yet found the time7 Far too many.
      This is Life, all right, but we do treat it like a rehearsal (排演) and, unhappily, we do miss
so many of its best moments.
      We take jobs to stay alive and provide homes for our families always making ourselves believe
that this style of life is merely a temporary state of affairs along the road to what we really want to
do. Then, at 60 or 65, we are suddenly presented with a clock and several grandchildren and we
look back and realize that all those years waiting for Real Life to come along were in fact real life.
     In  America they have a saying much laughed at by the English:“Have a nice day” they
speak slowly and seriously in their shops, hotels and sandwich bars. I think it is a wonderful
phrase, reminding us, in effect, to enjoy the moment: to value this very day.
     How often do we say to ourselves, "I'll take up horse-riding (or golf, or sailing) as soon as
I get a higher position," only to do none of those things when I do get the higher position.
     When I first became a reporter I knew a man who gave up a very well paid respectable job at
the Daily Telegraph to go and edit a small weekly newspaper. At the time I was astonished by what
appeared to me to be his completely abnormal (反常的) mental state. How could anyone turn his
back on Fleet Street in central London for a small local area?I wanted to know.
     Now I am a little older and possibly wiser, I see the sense in it. In Fleet Street the man was
under continual pressure. He lived in an unattractive London suburb and he spent much of his life
sitting on Southern Region trains.
