      Directions:
      The 12,000 members of the Electricity Workers'Union went on strike last week and since then there has been no electricity.For questions 36-40,match the names with of each person to one of the statements(A-G)below.Mark your answers on ANSWER SHEET 1.
      Mr.Mike Smith:
      It wasn't an easy decision,but we've been asking for a decent wage for years.Now at last people are beginning to listen to us.We're only asking for a 25 percent increase in our wages.250 dollars a week,that's all.It's a pity so many people have to be inconvenienced by our strike.But please don't blame us.Blame the government for refusing our claim.
      Mr.Tom Brown:
      It's totally unreasonable to demand so much money when we are trying desperately to control inflation.If wages go up,so do prices.If we gave in to the electricity workers,all the other unions would want more,with the inevitable result that the crisis would become uncontrollable.What we're trying to impress upon everybody is that inflation hurts everybody,especially the poor people.
      We offer the electricity workers a lO percent increase.And that's already too much.My stand at this meeting will be to persuade the Union to see reason.
      Mr.Bob Davis:
      Everybody will be hurt by this strike,including the electricity workers themselves.The econo my will be destroyed and many people will lose their jobs.Already people are saying that the big unions have too much power and shouldn't be allowed to strike..Of...course the electricity workers want to get more money.Don't we all?
      Mrs.Baker:
      My opinion is"Get the Army in".All the power managed by the army.The strikers should be thrown into prison.That's what this country needs.Why must we all sufl
      just because a few men are greedy?If they don't like their jobs,nobody's forcing them to worl hey should try and live on 50 dollars a week like I have to.Perhaps they'd keep their moutl shut then.
      Miss Slater:
      Let's face it.It's neither here nor there.The electricity workers are in a strong position.Perhaps we can't do anything about it.What I say is:let them have their 9-50 dollars so we can rerun to work.I mean,the government wastes the taxpayers'money all the time on trivial things.How can anyone say 250 dollars is"too much"?Pop singers get more.Nurses get less.It's just one ot those things.
      Now match each of the persons(36-40)to the appropriate statement.
      Note:there are two extra statements.
      Statements
      1.Mr.Mike Smith
      2.Mr.Tom Brown
      3.Mr.Bob Davis
      4.Mrs.Baker
      5.Miss Slater
      A.A 10%increase is already too much,and I'm here to persuade the Union to see reason.
      B.1 I hope that strikes should be banned in all sectors relaring to the nation's security and stability.
      C.We will never go back to work until our goals are achieved.
      D.I think that the government should give in to the electricity worker's demands.
      E.I strongly suggest that all the power stations should be run by the army and that the strikers should be put into prison.
      F.I must make you clear that strikes will destroy the economy and that many people will lose their jobs.
      G.We are forced to call a strike because the government rejected our wage claim.
      参考答案:1.G 2.A 3.F 4.E 5.D
      参考译文
      麦克·史密斯先生:
      我们并不是轻易决定要这么做?#27169;?#36825;么多年来我们一直在要求一个合理的工资。现在终于有人开始注意听我们?#19981;?#20102;.我们仅仅希望能把工资提高25%,提高到每周250美元,仅此而已。我们的罢工给这么多人带来不便,?#28304;?#25105;们也很遗憾。但是请不要责怪我们,要怪就?#32456;?#24220;巴,是政府拒绝我们的请求。
      汤姆·布朗先生:
      在我们正竭尽全力地控制通货膨胀的时候,他们却要这么多钱。真是不可理喻。工资提高了,物价?#19981;?#36319;着提高的。要是我们答应电厂工人的要求,其他工会就会要得更多,无法避免的结果就是这次的危机会失控。我们想让大家都明白:通货膨胀会危害每一个人,尤其是穷人。我们同意给电厂工人?#26377;?0%,这已经是很多了。我主张通过这次会谈使工会的人理智地面对问题。
      鲍勃·戴维斯先生:
      这次罢工将会伤害每个人的利益,也包括那些电厂工人自己。国家经济会受到冲击,许多人将失业。现在就已经有人说各大工会拥有的权力过大,并且不该有罢工的权力。电厂工人想要更多的钱,谁不想呢?贝克夫人:
      我的意见是“动用军队”。所有的电厂都该由军队管理。把那些罢工者都投进监狱里,这才是这个国家应该做的。为什么我们大家要因为几个贪婪的人受罪呢?要是他们不喜欢自己的工作,没人会强?#20154;?#20204;干活儿。他们应该试着像我一样每周靠50美元生活。没?#32423;?#37027;时候他们就会闭嘴了。
      斯莱特小姐:
      大家来面对问题吧!这是个无关紧要的事情。电厂工人处于强势地位.我们也许真的?#28304;?#26080;能为力。我想说的是:给他们250美元吧,我们就可以回去工作了。我的意思是,政府一直都在一些微不足道的小事上浪费?#20260;?#20154;的钱。怎么能说250美元“太多”呢?流行歌手们赚的多些.护士们赚的少些,这不过是其中一例而已。
