My folks bought their first house in the early 1940s after Dad got a better job in Marquette, Michigan. We lived just inside the city limits in what was still a rural area.
In the spring of 1948, when I was 6 years old, my parents bought a calf(小牛) to replace our cow, which had been killed the year before. So one day we drove to a local farm and returned with a white and brown calf we named Tubby.
We didn’t own a truck, so Tubby rode home in the backseat of Dad’s car with my 9-year-old brother, Steve, and me. As you can imagine, the trip was a lot of fun for us kids.
Later that summer, Mom thought it would be cute to take a picture of me sitting on Tubby’s back. All went well until the snap of the camera shutter sent Tubby charging off on a run, with me holding on for dear life.
I lasted for about 30 feet before I hit the ground. Mom was quick enough to shoot a follow-up picture, so we had photos of me both on and off Tubby!
When summer had passed, the day arrived for poor Tubby to fill our freezer. I must have been somewhere else with my Mom on the fateful day, because I have no memory of how it happened. All I knew was that the barn was empty, and that we had plenty of meat for dinners.
I hadn’t lived on a farm like my mother, so I didn’t understand that what happened to Tubby was not unusual. Liv estock aren’t meant to be pets, and most farm kids know and accept that truth.
Whenever we had beef for dinner, I would tearfully, “Is this Tubby?” This went on for a couple of weeks until Dad had finally had enough and declared, “No more cows!” That made me feel a little better about poor Tubby.
21.The writer’s parents bought Tubby so that ____.
A. they would have more cows in the future B. It would provide their children with milk.
C. the family would have enough meat to eat D. they would no longer feel lonely on the farm.
22. Which word can be used to describe the author’s mom?
A. Serious. B. Strong-willed. C. Careless D. Quick-minded.
23. We learn from the passage that _____.
A. Steve was not so fond of Tubby as his younger brother.
B. the author had much trouble with Tubby in the summer.
C. the author’s mom thought it natural to kill a cow for meat.
D. the author was pleased to see their freezer filled with beef.
24. We can most probably read the text above in a website on ____.
A. pets B. education C. diet D. animals

Early on e morning, more than a hundred years ago, an American inventor called Elias Howe finally fell asleep. He had been working all night on the design of a sewing machine but he had run into a very difficult problem: It seemed impossible to get the thread to run smoothly around the needle.
Though he was tired, Howe slept badly. He turned and turned. Then he had a dream. He dreamt that he had been caught by terrible savages whose king wanted to kill him and eat him unless he could build a perfect sewing machine. When he tried to do so, Howe ran into the same problem as before. The thread kept getting caught around the needle. The king flew into the cage and ordered his soldiers to kill Howe. They came up towards him with their spears raised. But suddenly the inventor noticed something. There was a hole in the tip of each spear. The inventor awoke from the dream, realizing that he had just found the answer to the problem. Instead of trying to get the thread to run around the needle, he should make it run through a small hole in the center of the needle. This was the simple idea that finally made Howe design and build the first really practised sewing machine.
Elias Howe was not the only one in finding the answer to his problem in this way. Thomas Edison, the inventor of the electric light, said his best ideas came into him in dreams. So did the great physicist Albert Einstein. Charlotte Bronte also drew in her dreams in writing Jane Eyre.
To know the value of dreams, you have to understand what happens when y ou are asleep. Even then, a part of your mind is still working. This unconscious(无意识的), but still active part understands your experiences and goes to work on the problems you have had during the day. It stores all sorts of information that you may have forgotten or never have really noticed. It is only when you fall asleep that this part of the brain can send messages to the part you use when you are awake. However, the unconscious part acts in a special way. It uses strange images which the conscious part may not understand at first. This is why dreams are sometimes called “secret messages to ourselves”.
28.According to the passage, Elias Howe was________.
A. the first person we know of who solved problems in his sleep
B. much more hard-working than other inventors
C. the first person to design a sewing machine that really worked
D. the only person at the time who knew the value of dreams
29The problem Howe was trying to solve was________.
A. what kind of thread to use B. how to design a needle which would not break
C. where to put the needle D. how to prevent the thread from getting caught around the needle
30.Thomas Edison is spoken of because________.
A. he also tried to invent a sewing machine B. he got some of his ideas from dreams
C. he was one of Howe’s best friends D. he also had difficulty in falling asleep
31.Dreams are sometimes called “secret messages to ourselves” because ________.
A. strange images are used to communicate ideas B. images which have no meaning are used
C. we can never understand the real meaning D. only specially trained people can understand them
People can be addicted to(沉溺于) different things — e.g. alcohol, drug, certain foods, or even television. People who have such an addiction are compulsive(强迫的):they have a very powerful psychological need that they feel they must satisfy. According to psychologists, many people are compulsive spenders. They feel that they must spend money. This compulsion, like most others, is impossible to explain reasonably. For compulsive spenders who buy on credit(以赊欠方式), charge accounts are even more exciting than money. In other words, compulsive spenders feel that with credit, they can do anything. Their pleasure in spending large amounts is actually greater than the pleasure that they get from the things they buy.
There is even a special psychology of bargain hunting. To save money, of course, most people look for sales, low prices, and discounts. Compulsive bargain hunters, however, often buy things that they don’t need just because they are cheap. They want to believe that they are helping their budgets(预算), but they are really playing an exciting game. When they can buy something for less than other people, they feel that they are winning. Most people, experts claim, have two reasons for their behavior: a good reason for the things that they do and the real reason.
It is not only scientists, of course, who understand the psychology of spending habits, but also business people. Stores, companies, and advertisers use psychology to increase business. They consider people’s needs for love, power, or influence, their basic values, their beliefs and opinions, an d so on in their advertising and sales methods.
Psychologists often use a method called “behavior therapy(疗法)” to help individuals solve their personality problems. In the same way, they can help people who feel that they have problems with money.
32. According to the psychologists, a compulsive spender is one who spends large amounts of money ___.
A. and takes great pleasure from what he or she buys B. in order to satisfy his or her basic needs in life
C. just to meet his or her strong psychological need D. and feels he or she is cheated
33. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the text?
A. People spend money for exactly the same reason that they need to buy things.
B. Business people and advertisers can use the psychology of people’s spending habits to increase sales.
C. Business people understand the psychology of compulsive buying better than scientists do.
D. Compulsive bargain hunters do not have problems with money.
34. What is the text mainly about?
A. The psychology of money-spending habits. B. The habits of compulsive spenders.
C. A special psychology of bargain hunting. D. The use of the psychology of spending habits in business.
35. From the text we may safely conclude that compulsive
spenders or compulsive bargain hunters _____.
A. are really unreasonable B. need special treatment
C. are really beyond drugs D. can never get any help to solve their problems with money

“I want you to have this, Tommy. It will keep your clothes from getting wet. Thanks, Son.” 58 that he disappeared into the Sunday paper. I looked down at the apron. It had seen better days. I could see my dad 59 for the dishes and washing them happily. My dark angel disappeared. Soon I was singing a song about a(n) 60 . I knew the kind pf man I wanted to be – my dad.
