Human needs seem endless.They might be regarded as making up several levels.
When there is enough money to satisfy one level of needs,another level appears The first and most basic level of needs involves food.Once this level is satisfied,the
second level of needs,clothing and some sort of shelter,appears.By the end of World
WarI,these needs were satisfied for a great majority of'Americans.Then a third level appeared.It included such items as automobiles and new houses.
By 1957 or 1958 this third level of needs was fairly well satisfied.Then,in the late 1950s,a fourth level of needs appeared:the"life-enriching"level.While the other levels involve physical satisfaction,that is,the feeding,comfort,safety,and transportation,this level stresses mental needs for recognition,achievement,and
happiness.It includes a variety of goods and services.Among them are vacation trips,
the best medical and dental care,and recreation.Also included here are fancy goods and the latest styles in clothing.
On the fourth level,a lot of money is spent on services,while on the first three levels
more is spent on goods.
A fifth level would probably involve needs that can be achieved best by community action.Consumers may be spending more on taxes to pay for government action against disease,ignorance,crime,and prejudice.After filling our stomachs,our clothes closets,our garages,our teeth,and our minds,we now may seek to ensure the health,safety,and leisure to enjoy more fully the good things on the first four levels.

It was a case of emergency.The four-year-old girl awoke and smelled smoke.
She couldn't wake her mother,so she dialed zero?.An operator immediately called the fire department.Help was sent,and a tragedy avoided.
Days before this emergency,the mother had taught her child how to telephone for help.Children as young as two and one-half years old can be taught to use the phone
in emergency situations.Here are some points.
Memorizing certain facts is important.Teach your children their names,and the section of town where you live.Try to keep what they learn within their abilities.
Simple information,learned well,is better than difficult information partly learned.Be sure your children know how to use the telephone.They should be taught to dial
zero"for the operator,at the very least.And they should be taught to dial"911"if it
is used in your town.
Practice over a period of several days.Over-leaning is necessary so the child can aet automatically in case of emergency.
If you would like a booklet giving instructions on calling for help,write Telephone for
Help,Box 99,Bowling Green Station,New York,NY 10004.

Oceanography has been defined as"the application of all sciences to the study of the sea".
Before the nineteenth century scientists with an interest in the sea were few and far
betwen.Certainly Newton considered some theoretical aspects of it in his writings
but he was reluctant to go to sea to further his work.
For most people the sea was remote,and with the exception of early intercontinental
trawelers or others who earned a living from the sea,there was little reason to ask many questions about it,let alone to ask what lay beneath the surface.The first time that the question"What is at the bottom of the oceans?"had to be answered with any commercial consequence was when the laying of a telegraph cable from Europe to America was proposed.The engineers had to know the depth profile起伏形状)of the route to estimate the length of the cable that had to be manufactured.
It was to Maury of the US Navy that the Atlantic Telegraph Company turned in 1853 for information on this matter.In the 1840s,Maury had been responsible for ncouraging voyages during which soundings测水深)were taken to investigate the
depths of the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.Later,some of his findings amused much popular interest in his book The Physical Geography of the Sea.
The cable was laid,but not until 1866 was the connection made permanent and reliable.At the early attempts,the cable failed and when it was taken out for repairs,it was found to be covered in living growths,a fact which defied contemporary scientific opinion that there was no life in the deeper points of the sea.
Within a few years oceanography was under way.In 1872 Thomson led a scientific expedition考察)，which lasted for four years and brought home thousands of samples from the sea.Their classification and analysis occupied scientists for years
and led to a five-volume report,the last volume being published in 1895.
13.The proposal to lay a telegraph cable from Europe to Amenea made oceanographic studies take on
A.an academic aspect B.a military aspect
C.a business aspectD.an international aspect
14.It was_ that asked Maury for help in oceanographic studies
A.the American Navy
B.Some early intercontinental travelers
C.those who earned a living from the sea
D.the company which proposed to lay an undersea eable
15.The aim of the voyage Maury was responsible for in the 1840s was
A.to make some sounding experiments in the oceans
B.to collect samples of sea plants and animals
C.to estimate the length of cable that was needed
D.to measure the depths of the two oceaas
16.This passage is mainly about
A.the beginnings of oceanography
B.the laying of the 1st undersea cable
C.the investigation ofocean depths
D.the early intercontinental communications
The small number of newborn babies,which has been caused by high prices and the changing sooial situation of women,is one of the most serious problems in Asia.When people talk about it,you can hear a word invented in Japan,"DINKS",which
means Dounble Income No Kids.
In many major Asian cities like Seoul,Singapore,and Tokyo,the cost of a house is
extremely high.A young couple who want to buy their own house may have to pay
about$300,000(though prices have fallen).For a flat with one bedroom,one dining-room,a kitchen,and a bathroom,the couple will pay about$900 a month.
What's more if they want to have a child,the child's education is very expensive.For
example,most kindergarten charges are at least$5.000 a year.In such a situation,it's
difficult to afford children.
The number of married women who want to continue working increases rapidly
because they enjoy their jobs.However,if they want to have children,they immediately have serious problems.Though most companies allow women to leave their jobs for a short time to have a baby,they expect women with babies to give up their jobs.
In short,if they want to bring up children properly,both parents have to work,but it is hard for mothers to work.Indeed,women who want to continue working have to
choose between having children or keeping their jobs.
In a word,Asian governments must take steps to improve the present situation as soon as possible.
17.What is the main problem being discussed in the passage?
A.The small number of newborn babies.
B.The changing social situation of women.

B.The prices of houses in Asia are quite low now.

D.The word"DINKS"appeared in an Asian country.
19.To buy a flat and send a child to kindergarten,how much will a couple pay each year?
A.$5,0 0 0 B.$5,9 0 0 C.$1 0,8 0 0 D.$1 5,8 0 0

B.allow one of the parents to go out to work
C.care for the growing needs of women for job.
D.punish the companies that permit women to leave.
