Coin collection is one of the oldest known hobbies. In the past it was often enjoyed by kings
and scholars. It is also a pleasant way of saving.
The designs on coins tell many stories. The coins of a country often are a record of its history
and geography. Some ancient coins tell us all we know about a country or a period of history.
They bring us portraits of rulers who would be otherwise (否则) unknown. Coins tell us about the
art, religion, dress and hairstyles of people who lived long ago.
Your special interests will help you decide the kind of coin collection you would like to have.
You may wish to collect the coins of one country or one part of the world. Or you may want your
collection to contain coins from all over the world in certain period of time.
Some people choose to collect the coins of their own country, while others are interested in
ancient Greek and Roman coins that visitors bring back from foreign countries can be the
beginning of a collection.
Another way to start a collection is to select the best examples of coins now in use. You may
be able to collect an interesting series of United States coins with different dates.
To get the most enjoyment from your hobby of coin collecting, read as much as you can on
the subject. Try to form a group of collector friends. If you have an old or foreign coin, find out
where and when it was made, its name and value, and what you could have bought with it when it
was in use.
There are many ways to arrange coin collections. Some collectors keep their coins in small
square (正方形) envelopes. A complete description (描述) of the coins should be written on the
outside of the envelopes. These envelopes are arranged in cardboard boxes.
Never clean a coin unless it is caked with dirt. Remove the dirt with soap and warm water.
Do not use anything hard. This will damage both the looks and value of the coin.
36. Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the selection as a benefit of the ways
mentioned in the selection is ______.
A. you can increase your knowledge of history.
B. you can learn about the geography of some countries.
C. you can have some ideas of how people lived in the old days.

A. if you try to learn as much as possible from the coins you have in your collection
B. if you get a lot of money selling them
C. if you clean them every now and then
D. if you can arrange them in different ways
38. There are several ways to arrange your coins. The way recommended in the selection is
A. to put them in bags
B. to keep them in small envelopes
C. to keep them in glass cases

A. clean them whenever you have time

It's impolite to arrive at a dinner party more than 15 to 20 minutes late. The host or hostess
usually waits for all of the guests before serving the food. If someone is late, the food may be
spoiled, and so might the host or hostess' mood. If you find you will have to be late, call and tell
them to start without you.
It's even worse to be early! The host or hostess will probably not be ready. If you are early,
drive or walk around the block (街区) a few times, or just sit in your car until the right time.
It's often important to arrive at a party on time. Some get-togethers, especially formal dinner
parties depend on exact arrival times. On the other hand, for open houses, the host or hostess
invites guests to arrive and leave between specific times, so you can arrive at any time within the
times he or she gives you.
It's nice to bring an empty stomach, but it's even nicer to bring a small gift. The gift should
not cost a lot, or you might embarrass (使人难堪) the host or hostess. Flowers, wine, some pretty
soap for the guest bathroom, a box of candy, a bottle of inexpensive but good wine and similar
gifts will do fine. Never bring money as a gift.
North Americans might kiss a close friend on the cheek in greeting. (But never on the lips --
unless they are very, very close!) It is not customary (习惯) for Americans to greet each other with
a kiss unless they had not met for a long time.
40. If you find you'll have to be late for a dinner party, you should ______.
A. send someone to tell the host or the hostess not to wait for you

Hank Viscardi was 26 years old when he put on his first pair of long trousers and his first pair
of shoes. For the first time he saw himself as he had always wanted to be -- a full five feet eight
Hank had been born without legs. Until he was seven, his world was a world of repeated
operations. At last he had -- not legs, but stumps (残肢) that could be fitted with a kind of special
Out of the hospital, Hank often found people staring at him with cruel interest. Children
laughed at him and called him "Ape Man" because his arms dragged (拖) on the ground.
He went to school like other boys. His grades were good and he needed only eight years
instead of the usual twelve.
After graduation, Hank worked his way through college. He swept floors, waited on table, or
worked in one of the college offices. During all this busy life, Hank had been moving around on
his stumps. But one day the doctor told him even the stumps were not going to last much longer.
Hank would soon have to use a wheel chair.
Hank felt himself go cold all over. However, the doctor said there was a chance that he could
be fitted with artificial (人造的) legs.
Finally a leg maker was found and the day came when Hank stood up before the mirror and
saw himself for the first time, five feet eight inches tall.
But this was not the end yet. He had to learn to use his new legs. Again and again he marched
the length of the room, and marched back again. There were times when he fell down on the floor,
but he pulled himself up and went back to the endless marching. He went out on the street. He
climbed the stairs and learned to dance. He built a boat and learned to sail it.
When World War II came, he talked the Red Cross (红十字会) into giving him a job. He
took the regular training. He marched and drilled along with the other soldiers. Few knew that he
was legless. This was the true story of Hank Viscardi, the man without legs.

In the United States many have been told that anyone can become rich and successful if he
works hard and has some good luck.
Yet, when one becomes rich, he wants people to know it. And even if he does not become
very rich, he wants people to think that he is. That is what "keeping up with the Joneses" is about.
It is the story of someone who tries to look as rich and as successful as his neighbors.
The expression was first used in 1913 by a young American by the name of Arthur Momand.
He told this story about himself: he began earning $ 125 a week at the age of 23. That was a lot of
money in those days. Young Momand was very proud of his riches. He got married and moved
with his wife to a very wealthy neighborhood outside New Your City. But just moving there was
not enough. When he saw that rich people rode horses, Momand went horse riding every day.
When he saw that rich people had servants, Momand and his wife also hired (雇) a servant and
gave big parties for their new neighbors.
It was like a race, but one could never finish this race because one was always trying to keep
up. Momand and his wife could not do that.
The race ended for them when they could no longer pay for their new way of life. They left
their wealthy neighborhood and moved back to an apartment in New York City.
Momand looked around him and noticed that many people do things just to keep up with
their neighbors. He saw the funny side of it and started to write a series (系列) of short stories. He
called it "keeping up with the Joneses", because "Jones" is a very common name in the United
States. "Keeping up with the Joneses" came to mean keeping up with the people around you.
Momand's series appeared in different newspapers across the country for over 28 years.
Every city has an area where people want to live because others will think better of them if
they do. And there are "Joneses" in every city of the world. But one must get tired of trying to
keep up with the Joneses, because no matter what one does, Mr. Jones always seems to be ahead
48. The writer of the selection believes ______.
A. anyone in the United States can become rich
B. anyone in the United States can become rich if he works hard and has some good luck
C. he can become rich in the future
D. many people in the United States think anyone can become rich if he works hard and has
some good luck
49. It can be inferred from the story that rich people ______.
A. like to live outside New York City
B. like to live in New York City
C. like to live in apartments
D. like to have many neighbors
50. Arthur Momand used the name "Jones" in his series of short stories because Jones is
A. an important name
B. a popular name in the United States
C. his neighbor's name
D. not a good name
51. According to the writer, it is ______.
A. correct to keep up with the Joneses
B. interesting to keep up with the Joneses
C. impossible to keep up with the Joneses
D. good to keep up with the Joneses
A dream is made up of a series of mind-pictures that form during sleep. The people and
actions in these pictures seem real to the person who is dreaming.
Dreams may be influenced by different things that are present during sleep. If a person is
cold, he may dream that he is out in a snowstorm. Worries or anger may also influence the content
of a dream.
Some people think that they seldom dream, and other people are quite sure that they do not
dream at all. Studies of human sleep have shown, though, that everyone dreams every night. If a
person thinks he does not dream, it is because he does not remember dreaming when he wakes up.
Usually, a person may dream three to seven times for a total of one to two hours of dreaming
Perhaps you are wondering just how research workers can be sure that a person is dreaming.
The story behind the discovery is an interesting one.
During their research studies of human sleep, Dr. Kleitman and his assistants noticed that a
person sleeping made sudden eye movements. These eye movements occurred at least several
times a night. When a sleeper was awakened during these periods of eye movement, it was learned
that he had been dreaming. Inmost cases, the dreamer could then recall (回忆) his dream. The
person's eye movements, scientists believe, were caused by the movements of his eyes as he
followed the events of the dream.
Not only does everyone dream, but it seems that we all need to dream. One theory is that
dreaming gives us a chance to escape (逃避) from the rules of our real world. In dreams we can
see our wishes come true. We can be rich, powerful, successful.
Another theory is that in our dream we are trying to work out our problems that have troubled
us during waking moments.
Whatever the explanation, we all do dream, and dreaming is necessary and important to us.
52. According to the selection, the research studies of human sleep show ______.
A. few people dream at night
B. some people dream three times every night while other people dream seven times every night

A. when your alarm clock is ringing
B. when you feel hungry
C. when you are cold
D. when you are ill
54. According to the selection, you can discover what your husband (wife, brother or sister)
is dreaming by ______.
A. watching him (her) closely
B. waking him (her) up when he (she) makes sudden eye movements and asking him (her)
what he (she) is dreaming of
C. watching his (her) eye movements
D. talking to him while he (she) is sleeping
