    Tim Richter and his wife, Linda, had taught for over 30 years near Buffalo, New York--he in computers, she in special education. "Teaching means everything to us," Tim would say. In April1998, he learned he would need a heart operation. It was the kind of news that leads to some serious thinking about life's purpose.

    Not long after the surgery, Tim saw a brochure describing Imagination Library, a program started by Dolly Parton' s foundation (基金会) that mailed a book every month to children from birth to age five in the singer's home town of Sevier, Tennessee.I thought, maybe Linda and I could do something like this when we retire," Tim recalls.  He placed the brochure on his desk, "as a reminder."

    Five years later, now retired and with that brochure still on the desk, Tim clicked on imagination library .com. The program had been opened up to partners who could take advantage of book and postage discounts.

The quality of the books was of great concern to the Richters. Rather than sign up online, they went to Dollywood for a look-see. We didnt want to give the children rubbish, says Linda. The books-reviewed each year by teachers, literacy specialists and Dollywood board members-included classics such as Ezra Jack Keatss The Snowy Day and newer books like Anna Dewdneys Llama Llama series.

   Satisfied, the couple set up the Richter Family Foundation and got to work. Since 2004, they have shipped more than 12,200 books to preschoolers in their in their area. Megan Williams, a mother of four, is more than appreciative: This program introduces us to books Ive never heard of .

  The Richters spend about 400 a month sending books to 200 children. Some people sit there and wait to die, says Tim. Others get as busy as they can in the time they have left.


21What did Tim want to do after learning about Imagination Library?

 A.Give out brochures.                        B .Do something similar.

 C. Write books for children                    D. Retire from being a teacher.

 C. a singer born in Tennessee                  D .a computer programmer

 A. To avoid signing up online.

 B. To meet Dollywood board members.

 C. To make sure the books were the newest.

 D. To see if the books were of good quality.

24What can we learn from Tims words in the last paragraph?

   Diana Jacobs thought her family had a workable plan to pay for college for her 21-year-old twin sons: a combination of savings, income, scholarships, and a modest amount of borrowing. Then her husband lost his job, and the plan fell apart.

   I have two kids in college, and I want to say come home, but at the same time I want to provide them with a good education, says Jacobs.

 The Jacobs family did work out a solution: They asked and received more aid form the schools, and each son increased his borrowing to the maximum amount through the federal loan (贷款) program. They will each graduate with $20,000 of debt, but at least they will be able to finish school.

     With unemployment rising, financial aid administrators expect to hear more families like the Jacobs. More students are applying for aid, and more families expect to need student loans. College administrators are concerned that they will not have enough aid money to go around.

     At the same time, tuition(学费)continues to rise. A report from the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education found that college tuition and fees increa sed 439% from 1982 to 2007, while average family income rose just 147%. Student borrowing has more than doubled in the last decade,

     If we go on this way for another 25years, we wont have an affordable system of higher education, says Patrick M. Callan, president of the center. The middle class families have been financing it through debt. They will send kids to college whatever it takes, even if that means a huge amount of debt.

    Financial aid administrators have been having a hard time as many companies decide that student loans are not profitable enough and have stopped making them. The good news, however, is that federal loans account for about three quarters of student borrowing, and the government says that money will flow uninterrupted.


25. How did the Jacobs manage to solve their problem?

     A. They asked their kids to come home.

     B. They borrowed $20,000 from the school.

     C. They encouraged their twin sons to do part-time jobs.

     D. They got help from the school and the federal government.

26. Financial aid administrators believe that _______.

     A. more families will face the same problem as the Jacobses

     B. the government will receive more letters of complaint

     C. college tuition fees will double soon

     D. Americas unemployment will fall

27.What can we learn about the middle class families from the text?

 A. They blamed the government for the tuition increase.

 B. Their income remained steady in the last decade.

 C. They will try their best to send kids to college.

 D. Their debts will be paid off within 25 years.

28.According to the last paragraph, the government will       .

 A. provide most students will scholarships

 B. dismiss some financial aid administrators

 C. stop the companies from making student loans

 D. go on providing financial support for college students
