 4.A Horrible Earthquake 

    Dirty water rose in wells and canals before the earthquakeBut no one judged that an earthquake was coming.Suddenlyverything shookIt seemed as if the world was at an endMillions of brick houses and a number of dams were destroyedRailway tracks became useless barsPipes in mines burst and let out smelly steamHuge cracks trapped cyclists everywhere.

    The next daythis event was the headline or main title of all newspapersWith the reporters giving an outline of the disasterthe whole nation was shocked by the damage and the victim' s extreme sufferingPeople were moved when they read that the survivors comforted each other by saying " Congratulations!You survived!" So they not only expressed their sympathy sincerelybut also organized together to help the victims right awayThe injured were rescued and the dead were buriedThe frightened survivors were dug out from under the ruins and were offered shelterfresh water and electricity.Thanks to people' s helphe loss was minimized

 

  可怕的地震

地震前,水井和运河里的污水都涨涌起来。但是却没人判断出地震即将来临。霎那间,一切都在摇晃,似乎整个世界就要结束。数以百万的砖房和许多水坝遭到破坏;铁路轨道都变成无用的铁条;煤矿管道纷纷爆裂,发出有臭味的蒸汽;到处都有骑车的人被巨大的裂缝陷住。

  第二天,所有报纸都纷纷以大字标题或主要标题报道了这一事件。记者们描述了灾难的大概情况,全国都被地震的破坏和灾民们极度的苦难所震惊。当人们读到幸存者以“恭喜啊,你还活着。”来互相安慰时,都被感动了。人们不仅衷心地表达了他们的同情,而且还立刻组织起来帮助灾民。伤员被救助了,死者被埋葬了,吓坏的幸存者被从废墟中挖出来了,栖身处、净水和电力也很快得到提供。多亏了人们的帮助,灾区的损失被减到了最小。

 

5.The Great President

As the founder of the republic,  the president had many good qualitiesBefore coming to power,  he was a generous lawyerHe was willing to selflessly help everyone who turned to himHe accepted no fee to offer legal guidance and opinions to those who were out of work or uneducatedLaterbelieving all mankind to be equalhe devoted himself to stopping the unfair anti-black lawsHe set up the Black Youth League and was voted to be the leaderHoweverthough he kept peaceful principles without violence and terrorhis mean enemies still blew up his house and attacked his relativesand he himself couldn'  t escape being sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Not fearing of the prison guards? Crueltyhe kept active and begged no mercy from themAs a matter of facthe was always hopeful and never lost heart during the stage even though he was in trouble.

Finallypeople rewarded him with the leader'  s position and a gold blanket

 

  伟大的总统

作为共和国的创始人,这位总统具备许多的优秀品质。还在掌权之前,他就是一位慷慨的律师。他愿意无私地帮助那些向他求助的人。他免费为失业的,或没有受过教育的人提供法律指导和意见。后来,因为相信所有人类都是生来平等,他全身心投入到废除不平等的反黑人法律工作中。他建立了黑人青年团并被选为领袖。然而,尽管他坚持没有暴力、没有恐怖的和平原则,卑鄙的敌人还是炸毁了他的家、袭击了他的亲属,他自己也无法逃脱被判30年徒刑的遭遇。

在狱中,他毫不畏惧狱警的残酷,始终保持积极的态度,不向他们乞求怜悯。实际上,他在任何一个困境时期都充满着希望,从未灰心。

最后,人们以领袖的职位和一块金毯子回报了他的贡献。

 

6.A Brave Maid

    A wooden vase from the Ming Dynasty at the entrance of the reception hall amazed everyoneThe artists designed it in a rare style and selected valuable jewels to decorate itPeople thought highly of its fancy colour of honey and the beautiful paintings on it.

    The vase used to belong to a former castleBut when the country was at warthe enemy troops exploded the castle.Debates on how the vase survived went on and onIn order to remove people s doubta team of no less than 20 people carried out an informal investigationThe evidences they found showed that a maid took the vase apart and asked a sailor to sink it in a local wellShe never gave away the secret even under the cruel trial of the enemies who were in search of treasures.

    It is worth giving this brave maid a fortune in return

 

  勇敢的女仆

  接待大厅入口处的明朝木制花瓶 使每个人都惊奇不已。艺术家以一种罕有的风格设计它,并挑选了贵重的珠宝装饰它。人们高度赞赏它那蜂蜜般的奇特颜色,还有上面绘制的绘画。

  这个花瓶曾经属于一座从前的城堡,但在战争期间,敌人的军队炸毁了城堡,于是关于这个花瓶是如何幸存下来的争论就一直在持续着。为了解开人们的疑问,一个由不少于20人的调查队开展了一次非正式的调查。他们找到的证据表明,有个女仆把花瓶拆开,然后让一名水手把它沉到当地的一个水井里。她从来没有泄露这个秘密,即使是在搜寻财宝的敌人残酷的审讯下。

 

  这位女仆真是值得给予一大笔钱作为对她的回报。

 

7.A Fair Compitition

    Swifter, Higher and Stronger stands for the spirit of the Olympics. But fairness is the basis of this motto. Only when you win fairly will you and your homeland deserve the great glory. But nowadays, unlike the ancient honest slave competitors, some hopeless athletes who can't bear the pain of training cheat when taking part in games. Medals seem to have magical power causing them to cheat, and the prize money has replaced the motto as their only goal.

    Soin the gymnastics event to be held in our city next monthone of the host' s responsibilities is to keep competitions fairThey advertised on posters outside the stadium to promise that every competitor is to have a regular physical examination in a gymnasium one after anotherNo one can bargain on thisThe volunteers in charge will be very strictIt is foolish to cheat because they will not be admitted to compete and will even be fined as well

  公平的比赛

  “更快!更高!更强!”代表着奥运精神。但是公平却是这一格言的基础。只有当你公平地赢得比赛,你和你的祖国才会承受这样的光荣。但如今,不像古代那些诚实的奴隶参赛者,有些没有希望的运动员无法承受训练的痛苦,于是在参加比赛时作假。奖牌似乎有某种魔力使他们作假,奖金也已经代替了奥运格言成为了他们唯一的目标。

 

  因此,在我们市下个月即将举行的一场体操赛事中,主办方的其中一项责任就是要确保比赛的公平。他们在体育场外的海报上做广告,承诺说每个参赛者都将在体育馆一个一个地参加常规的身体检查。对此没有人可以讨价还价。负责此事的志愿者将非常严格。作假是很愚蠢的,因为他们将不被允许去竞赛,甚至还将被罚款。
