Tom Brennan was working in a Philadelphia office building when he noticed a black bag. The bag contained a book.
This chance discovery ended a 12-day search by the Library Company of Philadelphia for a historical treasure—a 120-page diary kept 190 years age by Deborah Logan, “a woman who knew everybody in her day, James Green, the librarian told the magazine American Libraries.
Most of the diary is a record of big events in Philadelphia. It also includes a description of British soldiers burning Washington D. C. in the war of 1812. She describes President James Madison on horseback as “perfectly shaking with fear” during the troubled days. George Washington, she writes, mistook her for the wife of a Frees a descripnch man and praised her excellent English.
The adventure of the lost book began on September 4 when Cory Luxmoore arrived from England to deliver the diary of his ancestor(祖先) to the Library Company, which he and his wife considered to be the best home for the diary.
Green told American libraries he had the diary in his possession “about five minutes when Luxmoore took it back because he had promised to show it to one other person. On returning to his hotel after showing the precious book to Green, Luxmoore was shocked to realize that he had left it in the taxi.
Without any delay, Green began calling every taxi company in the city, with no luck, “I’ve felt sick since then,” Luxmoore told reporters.
According to Green, no one has yet learned how the diary came to the office building.
According Tom Brennan received a reward(奖励) of 1,000. Philadelphia gained another treasure for its history, and Luxmoore told reporters, “It’s wonderful news. I’m on high.”

Computer people talk a lot about the need for other people to become “computer-literate. But not all experts(专家) agree that this is a good idea.
One pioneer, in particular, who disagrees is David Tebbutt, the founder of Computertown UK. Although many people see this as a successful attempt to bring people closer to the computer, David does not see it that way. He says that Computertown UK was formed for just the opposite reason, to bring computers to people and make them “people-literate.”
David Tebbutt thinks Computertowns are most successful when tied to a computer club but he insists there is an important difference between the two. The clubs are for people who have some computer knowledge already. This frightens away non-experts, who are happier going to Computertowns where there are computers for them to experiment on, with experts to encourage them and answer any questions they have. They are not told what to do, They find out. The computer experts have to learn not to tell people about computers, but have to be able to answer all questions people ask. People don’t have to learn computer terms(术语), but the experts have to explain in plain language. The computers are becoming “people-literate.”
56. Which of the following is David Tebbutt’s idea on the relationship between people and computers?
A. Computer learning should be made easier.
B. There should be more computer clubs for experts.
C. People should work harder to master computer use.
D. Computers should be made cheaper so that people can afford them.
57. We can infer from the text that “computer-lilterate” means ______.
A. being able to afford a computer
B. being able to write computer programs
C. working with the computer and finding out its value
D. understanding the computer and knowing how to use it
58. The underlined word “it in the second paragraph refers to the idea that Computertowns ______.
A. help to set up more computer clubs
B. bring people to learn to use computers
C. bring more experts to work together
D. help to sell computers to the public
59. David Tebbutt started Computertown UK with the purpose of ______.
A. making better use of computer experts
B. improving computer programs
C. increasing computer sales
D. popularising computers

Maybe ten-year-old Elizabeth put it best when she said to her father, “But, Dad, you can’t be healthy if you’re dead.”
Dad. in a hurry to get home before dark so he could go for a run, had forgotten to wear his safety belt—a mistake 75% of the US population make every day. The big question is why.
There have been many myths about safety belts ever since their first appearance in cars some forty years ago. The following are three of the most common.
Myth Number One: It’s best to be “thrown clear” of a serious accident.
Truth: Sorry, but any accident serious enough to “throw you clear is also going to be serious enough to give you a very bad landing. And chances are you’ll have travelled through a windshield(挡风玻璃) or door to do it. Studies show that chances of dying after a car accident are twenty-five times greater in cases where people are “thrown clear.
Myth Number Two: Safety belts “trap people in cars that are burning or sinking in water.
Truth: Sorry again, but studies show that people knocked unconscious(昏迷) due to not wearing safety belts have a greater chance of dying in these accidents. People wearing safety belts are usually protected to the point of having a clear head to free themselves from such dFAMILY: 'Timesangerous situations, not to be trapped in them.
Myth Number Three: Safety belts aren’t needed at speeds of less than 30 miles per hour.
Truth: When two cars travelling at 30 mph hit each other, an unbelted driver would meet the windshield with a force equal to diving headfirst into the ground from a height of 10 meters.

A. He was driving at great speed.

63. The reason father was in a hurry to get home was that he ______.
A. wasn’t feeling very well
B. hated to drive in the dark
C. wanted to take some exercise
D. didn’t want to be caught stylby the police
64. According to the text, to be “thrown clear of a serious accident is very dangerous because you ______.
A. may be knocked down by other cars
B. may get seriously hurt being thrown out of the car
C. may find it impossible to get away from the seat
D. may get caught in the car door
65. Some people prefer to drive without wearing a safety belt because they believe ______.
A. the belt prevents them from escaping in an accident
B. they will be unable to think clearly in an accident
C. they will be caught when help comes
D. cars catch fire easily
66. What is the advice given in the text?

C. Never forget to wear the safety belt while driving.
D. Drive slowly while you’re not wearing a safety belt.
When a group of children politely stop a conversation with you, saying, “We have to go to work now, you’re left feeling surprised and certainly uneasy. After all, this is the 1990s and the idea of children working is just unthinkable. That is, until you are told that they are all pupils of stage schools, and that the “work t, “We have to go to work now, you’re left fehey go off to is to go on the stage in a theatre.
Stage schools often act as agencies(代理机构) to supply children for stage and television work. More worthy of the name “stage school are those few places where children attend fulltime, with a training for the theatre and a general education.
A visit to such schools will leave you in no doubt that the children enjoy themselves. After all, what lively children wouldn’t settle for spending only half the day doing ordinary schoolwork, and acting, singing or dancing their way through the other half of the day?
Then of course there are times for the children to make a name and make a little money in some big shows. Some stage schools give their children too much professional work at such a young age. But the law is very tight on the amount they can do.
Those under 13 are limited to 40 days in the year; those over l3 do 80 days. The schools themselves admit that not all children will be successful in the profession for which they are being trained, So what happens to those who don’t make it? While all the leading schools say they place great importance on children getting good study results, the facts seem to suggest this is not always the case.
67. People would stop feeling uneasy when realizing that the children they’re talking to ______.
A. attend a stage school
B. are going to the theatre
C. have got some work to do
D. love singing and dancing
68. In the writer’s opinion, a good stage school should ______.
A. produce star performers
B. help pupils improve their study skills
C. train pupils in language and performing arts
D. provide a general education and stage training
69. “Professional work as used in the text means ______.
A. ordinary school work
B. money-making performances
C. stage training at school
D. acting, singing or dancing after class
70. Which of the following best describes how the writer feels about stage schools?
A. He thinks highly of what they have to offer.
B. He favours an early start in the training of performing arts.
C. He feels uncomfortable about children putting on night shows.
D. He doubts the standard of ordinary education they have reached.

One possible version:
Dear Mr Smith,
I was so pleased to hear from you and I am writing to tell you something about my school.
You are right. Quite a few changes have taken place. On one side of the road there is a new c1assroom building. On the other side, where the playground used to be now stands another new building—our library. In it there are all kinds of books, newspapers and magazines. The playground is now in front of the schoo1. We have also planted a lot of trees in and around the school. I hope you come and see for yourself someday.
