During my second year of college I was looking around for a place to live. One Sunday after church the pastor (牧师) told me to stay in his daughter’s room because his daughter was studying abroad for one year.
To be 31 , I really didn’t want to stay with “the pastor’s family”. He told me how much the 32 would be — a very low figure that 33 one home-cooked meal a day. I thought about the 34 and decided to move in.
At the end of the term I had planned to find 35 living place, since the daughter was to 36 home. To my delight, they 37 that I share a room with their son. I seemed to have been adopted into their 38 — her people became my people. I 39 accepted the offer.

Is there somebody you can depend on? And are others counting on you? We travel the path of life best when there is 40 to look after, and when someone is looking after us.

Every day millions of letters go from one country to another． Letters mailed in Italy are received in Japan． Letters mailed in Canada are received in Africa． On the letters are many different kinds of stamps，bought in different countries．
The Universal Postal Union helps each letter get to the right place as quickly as possible． It sets up rules about the size and weight of letters，postcards，and small packages（包裹）． It has rules that all countries must follow about international postal rates（费用）．

There are several ways of testing the intelligence(智力) of animals. In one test, some scientists put three plates on the table. While the animal watched, they put food under one of the plates. Then they took the animal away. Some time later, they brought it back to see if it remembered which plate had the food. The idea is to find out how long an animal’s memory can last. The scientists would try showing the plate to the animal one hour later, or two hours later, or even a full day later. They found out that chimpanzees and elephants have the best memory, and are able to remember the correct plate for at least twenty hours. No other animal is close. Dogs come next, but they can only remember for nine hours.
The scientists made a large maze(迷宫) and ran the chimpanzees and elephants through it. The maze was very difficult with many dead ends. It took the chimpanzees ten minutes to find their way out. The elephants needed half an hour. The test showed that chimpanzees are the cleverest animals.
From this and other tests the scientists found out an animal’s intelligence depends on the size of its brain to the size of its body. The elephant’s brain is ten pounds, but that is only 1/600 of its body. A chimpanzee’s brain is about one pound, and it’s 1/120 of its body. So the chimpanzee has five times as much brain as the elephant has ----more brain.
