Exactly one hundred years ago, Charles Chaplin was born into the world. When he was a poor boy, he was often seen waiting outside the London theatre, hoping to get work in show business.

People everywhere have laughed at Chaplins films until tears run down their faces. From his very first appearance they know what to expect from the little man with black moustache(胡子), wide open eyes, round black hat and shoes too large for his feet.

The poor man that Chaplin played in films makes all kinds of stupid mistakes. Hes always in trouble, but he never gives up. He always dreams of greatness.

Even people who dont understand English can enjoy Chaplins films because they are mostly silent. It isnt what he says that makes us laugh. His comedy(喜剧) doesnt depend on words. It depends on little actions which mean the same thing to people all over the world.

How Do We Know If Someone Is Really Important?

Several years ago, a television reporter was talking to three of the most important people in America. One was a rich banker(银行家), another owned one of the largest companies in the world, and the third had many buildings in the center of New York.

The reporter was talking to them about being important.

“How do we know if someone is really important?” the reporter asked the banker.

He thought for a few moments and then said, “I think anyone who is invited to the White House to meet the President of the United States is really important.”

The reporter turned to the owner of the very large company, “Do you agree with that?” she asked.

The owner of the very large company shook her head. “No,” she said, “I dont. I think the President invites a lot of people to the White House. Youd only be important while you were visiting the President, there was a telephone call from the President of another great power(强国), and the President of the United States said he was too busy to answer it.”

The reporter turned to the person who owned many buildings, “Do you agree with that?”

“No, I dont,” he said. “I dont think that makes the visitor important. That makes the President important.”

“Then what would make the visitor important?” the reporter asked.

“Oh, I think if the visitor to the White House was talking to the President and the phone rang, and the President picked it up, listened and then said, ‘Its for you. Thats really important.”

63. This story happened in ____.

A. England B. America C. Japan D. Australia

The nervous-looking young man had waited for a few moments outside the jewellers before he got enough courage to enter. He was warmly greeted by a young assistant. James felt a rush of blood to his face as he explained he would be bringing in his future wife to choose a birthday present. The assistant listened carefully and told him hed better buy a necklace. He wasnt used to buying jewellery and was a little worried about overspending. After some discussion as to a reasonable price and the type, the assistant showed him dozens of necklaces and helped him to choose. At last James chose one and left the shop promising to return at five oclock. When, half an hour later than planned, James did return to the shop with his future wife, Laura, the assistant acted as if she had never seen him before. When she was asked to show them some necklaces, she first brought out some inexpensive ones for them to choose, and then gave them the one she had prepared. A choice was soon made and they went away satisfiedly. James would certainly come back to buy what he wanted when he got married.

Most musicians agree that the best violins were first made in Italy. They were made in Gremona, Italy, about 200 years ago. These violins sound better than those made in any other places. They even sound better than violins made today. Violin makers and scientists try to make instruments like the old Italian violins. But they arent the same. Musicians still prefer the old ones. No one really knows why these old Italian violins are so special, but many people think they have an answer.

Some people think it is the age of the violins. They say that todays violins will also sound wonderful some day. But there is a problem here. Not all old violins sound wonderful. Only those from Gremona are special. So age cannot be the answer. There must be something different about Gremona or those Italian violin makers.

Other people think the secret to those violins is the wood. The wood of the violins is very important. It must be from certain kinds of trees. It must not be too young or too old. Perhaps the violin makers of Gremona knew something special about wood for violins.

But the kind of wood may not be so important. It may be more important to cut the wood in a special way. Wood for a violin must be cut very carefully. It has to be the right size and shape. The smallest difference will change the sound of the violin. Musicians sometimes think that this was the secret of the Italians. Maybe they understood more than we do about how to cut the wood.

Size and shape may not be the answer either. Scientists measured these old violins very carefully. They can make new ones that are exactly the same size and shape. But the new violins still do not sound as good as the old ones. Some scientists think the secret may be the varnish, which covers the wood of the violin and makes it look shiny. It also helps the sound of the instrument. No one knows what the Italian violin makers used in their varnish. So no one can make the same varnish today.

There may never be other violins like the violins of Gremona. Their secret may be lost forever. Young musicians today hope this is not true. They need fine violins. But there arent very many of the old violins left. Also, the old violins are very expensive. Recently, a famous old Italian violin was sold for about US $300,000!

72. This passage is about ____.

A. making violins B. musical instruments

C. scientific ideas D. the old Italian violins

73. Some people think that modern violins ____.

A. will sound better in the future

B. will not sound better in the future than today

C. sound wonderful naturally

D. will be better than those from Cremona

74. Some violins made today ____.

A. look the same as the old ones

B. sound the same as the old ones

C. are better than the old ones

D. have the same varnish as the old ones

75. It is agreed almost by all that ____.

A. all old violins sound better than new ones

B. all old violins sound wonderful

C. not all old violins sound wonderful

D. the secret of old violins cant be found
