1、Acting is such an over-crowded profession that the only advice that should be given to a young person thinking of going on the stage is "Don't!" But it is useless to try to discourage someone who feels that he must act, although the chances of his becoming famous are small. The normal way to begin is to go to a drama school. Usually only students who show promise and talent are accepted, and the course lasts two years. Then the young actor or actress takes up work with a repertory company, usually as an assistant stage manager. This means doing everything that there is to do in the theatre: painting scenery, looking after the furniture, publicity, taking care of the costumes, and even acting in very small parts. It is very hard work indeed, the hours are long and the salary is tiny. But young actors with the stage in their blood are happy, waiting for the chance of work with a better company, or perhaps in films or television.
Of course, some people have remarkable chances which lead to fame and success without this long and tedious training. Connie Pratt, for example, was just an ordinary girl working in a bicycle factory. A film producer happened to catch sight of her one morning waiting at a bus stop, as he drove past in his big car. He told the chauffeur to stop, and he got out to speak to the girl. He asked her if she would like to go to the film studio to do a test, and at first she thought he was joking. Then she got angry and said she would call the police. It took t he producer twenty minutes to convince Connie that he was serious. Then an appointment was made for her to go to the studio the next day. The test was successful. They gave her elocution lessons and within a few weeks she was playing the leading part opposite one of the most famous actors of the day. Of course, she was given a more dramatic name, which is now world-famous. But chances like this happen once in a blue moon!
1、Why is an assistant stage manager's job difficult?____
A、Because he has to wait for another chance.
B、Because he will not be happy.
C、Because he has to work long hours every day.
D、Because he has to do everything.
1、The reason why young people should be discouraged from becoming actors is that ____.
A、actors are very determined people
B、acting is very hard work
C、there are already too many actors
D、the course at the drama school lasts two years
2、"Then she got angry and said she would call the police". This sentence shows that ____.
A、The man acted with an ill purpose
B、She was a nervous woman
C、She totally disbelieved the proposal
D、The man forced her into his big car
3、The phrase "once in a blue moon" refers to ____.
A、once for a while
B、once for a long time
C、once in a full moon
D、once and for all
3、Usually only students who ____are accepted.
C、have received good education
D、are talented and promising
2、A nurse and her elderly uncle were waiting for a bus at a corner in downtown Chicago. Buses came by, but not the one they wanted. The woman finally half-entered one of the buses and asked the driver if the bus she wanted stopped at that corner.
The driver ignored her, so she repeated the question. Incredibly, he then closed the door -- on her arm -- and drove off.
The woman, her arm stuck in the door, trotted alongside the bus, shouting. Passengers said the driver stopped after almost a block only because they, too, were shouting.
When the driver finally did stop and opened the door, the woman jumped on the bus to get his badge number. Then he took off again and went another couple of blocks before other shouting passengers persuaded him to stop and let the woman off.
After the driver's bosses at the Chicago Transit Authority--a tax-supported governmental body -- heard of the incident, they looked into it and set his punishment: a five-day suspension without pay. That struck me as rather light.
But Bill Baxa, a CTA public-relations man, said, "That's a pretty harsh penalty. "
Five days off work is a harsh penalty for dragging a woman alongside a bus by her arm? Baxa said, "Any time you take money away from someone, it is a harsh punishment. The driver makes $14 an hour. Multiply that by 40 and you can see what he lost. "
Yes, that comes to $560, a tidy sum. But we know that people in the private sector are fired for far less every day. If the people who run the CTA think that the loss of a week's pay is more than enough, I offer them a sporting proposition: Give me a bus. Then have their wives stick their arms in the doorway of the bus, and I'll slam the door shut, stop the gas pedal and take them for a fast one-block jog. And I'll pay $560 to anyone who is bold enough to try it. Any takers? Mr. Baxa? Anybody? I didn't think so.
1、The reason why the woman trotted alongside the bus was that____.
A、she couldn't get herself away from the bus
B、she wanted to get the driver's badge number
C、she was dragged by the bus driver
D、the driver closed the door before she heard the answer
1、The nurse half-entered one of the buses because____.

2、The bus driver's punishment was____.
A、being dismissed from the CTA
B、paying a fine of $560
C、being out of work for a week
D、working without pay for five days
3、Why did the author offer a sporting proposition? ____
A、Because the bus driver had not been fired.
B、Because he thought the penalty was not a harsh on
C、Because the CTA paid little attention to the incident.
D、Because he wanted to threaten the CTA people.
3、How many blocks was the woman away from the corner where she waited when the bus driver finally let her off? ____
A、Almost two blocks.
B、Probably five or six blocks.
C、Almost one block.
D、Probably three blocks.
3、Your Bean Steak (素肉排), Sir!
What sort of food are we likely to be eating in the year 2000?
Most people, when you ask them a question like that, either say: " There won't be any left, " or "Whatever it is, there won't be much taste in it. " Of course, there are good reasons for being worried about the world's food supplies in the future. Nevertheless, not all the experts share these worries.
For one thing, although the world's population is rising fast, food production is keeping pace with it, even in developing countries. It is therefore argued that the main reason why people are hungry is not that there is a world food shortage but that methods of cultivation are not sufficiently advanced in some areas and the food is not fairly distributed ( 分配 ).
This does not mean, however, that our diet ( 饮食 ) will go on being the same. In many industrialized countries, people feed animals with grain to produce high-quality beef, even though the grain would feed the human population, and use fishmeal to fatten pigs to improve the quality of bacon. While not many of us would like fishmeal for lunch, its nutritional value is high and the unattractive fish it is made from can be presented to the public in colorful packets of fish fingers.
By the year 2000, many of these problems will have been solved. Scientists are already capable of making steaks from soy beans. It is quite obvious that there will still be enough to eat, if we are not too particular about where the food comes from and what it is made of.
1、The reason why people are hungry in today's world is ____.
A、poor farming methods and bad distribution
B、slow growth of food production
C、food shortages all across the world
D、fast rising population
1、Most people believe that food supplies in the future ____.
A、will become a very serious problem
B、will be the same as they are today
C、will be enough in quantity but not good in quality
D、will be much better than they are today
2、The word "particular" in Line 4, Para. 4 means ____.
3、The title of this passage suggests that ____.
A、food in the future will be tasteless
B、there will be worldwide food shortages
C、diet in the future will be very different
D、science is making rapid progress
3、The word "bacon" in Line 5, Para. 3 most probably is ____.
A、a kind of "meat" made from grain
B、meat made from fish
C、food for fish
D、meat made from pigs
4、Ants have outsmarted me on more than one occasion. In particular, there was a weekend last summer when an ant scientist was a guest at our cottage. I boasted to my naturalist friend that I could store food in an open container for a whole week and keep it safely out of the reach of house ants.
Sunday night the experiment got under way. I put a large wooden tub on the kitchen floor of our cottage. After filling it to about the three-quarters mark with water, I placed a high wooden stand in the middle of it. On top of the stool, I put a saucer containing the bait: three or four pieces of rich chocolate candy.
Then I painted a wide band of very slow-drying glue around the outside of the wooden tub. With that, I stood back and admired my ant trap, fully confident that the bait would be untouched upon my return to the cottage the following weekend.
When my naturalist friend and I entered the cottage just six days later, ants were swarming over the bait!
Here's how they put me to shame. Single files of ants had marched head-on into the band of glue around the outside of the wooden tub. A handful of them had endured martyrdom, for they had embedded themselves end to end, and made causeways of their bodies. The tempting bait on top of the stool must have caused the little creatures to use their brains to the limit. Ants hate water, but they had been courageous enough to build a highway across the stretch of water to a leg of the stool. They had assembled tiny pieces of grass and bits of wood no longer than a thirty-second of an inch, and had glued them together with saliva until their bridge extended from shore to island. Once they reached the leg of the wooden stool, traffic was almost all one way toward the chocolate bait.
But there were some show-off fellows around, too; they were doing things which ants have been known to do very rarely. We noticed that a half dozen or so were walking across the ceiling, and when they came directly over the bait they let themselves fall squarely into the middle of their merry brothers.
It is little wonder that I have been on the trail of ants ever since, trying to trip them up or at least learn some of the special tactics that they use.
1、The experiment was carried out in____.
B、an unused shed

A、at the top of the tub
B、on a stool in the tub
C、kept on the water
D、in the middle of the water
3、The ants managed to get over glue by____.
A、going round it in single files
B、covering it with their bodies
C、making a bridge with grass and wood
D、marching courageously across it
3、When the writer and his friend entered the cottage six days later, they found____.
A、swarms of ants walking across the ceiling
B、a lot of ants eating the chocolate candy
C、dead ants everywhere
D、swarms of ants marching around the tub
