Brazil (巴西) is the greatest football nation in the world. There are 100 million Brazilians (巴西人). How many of them are football fans? 100 million! All of them think that they know all about football. This makes life very difficult for the Brazilian team manager. When things go badly for the Brazilian team, the newspaper would demand (要求) that the team manager should leave his job. “If we win, they put me in heaven (天堂),” as a manager once said, “If we lose, they put me in hell (地狱).”
You can’t escape football in Brazil. There are football matches on every street and beach. On television, the results of the football matches come before the main news programs. There are six television channels in Rio de Janeiro. On Sundays each channel shows a different football match.
Brazil is not the richest country in the world, but the government spends huge sums of money on
football. It cost more than one billion pounds to prepare for the 1978 World Cup. That’s 10 pounds for every Brazilian man, woman, and child. And many Brazilians don’t earn as much as 10 pounds a week. Is it worth it?
“Brazil must have a great football team,” says one journalist. “If it costs one billion pounds, that’s all right. If the government doesn’t give a good football team, then it will become unpopular.
Football is more than a game in Brazil. This is certainly true in its largest city, Sao Paulo. The most popular team is Corinthians. Corinthians’ fans are the most loyal (忠实的) and emotional in Brazil. When Corinthians win, production in the Sao Paulo car factories increases by fifteen per cent. When they lose, it drops. At one time Corinthians won the national championship for the first time. For four days fans danced and sang in the streets.

Do you know how to play a game called “Musical Chairs”? It is easy to play and most people enjoy it. All you need are some chairs, some people and some way of making music. You may use a piano or any other musical instrument(乐器), if someone can play it. You may use a tape recorder. You can even use a radio.
Put the chairs in a row. The chairs may be put in twos， back to back. A better way is to have the chairs in one row with each chair facing in the opposite direction to the chair next to it.
The game is easy. When the music starts， the players walk round the chairs. Everyone goes in the same direction, of course, they should walk in time to the music. If the music is fast they should walk quickly. If the music is slow, they should walk slowly.
The person playing music cannot see the people in the game. When the music stops， the players try to sit on the chairs. If a person cannot find a chair to sit on， he drops out. Then， before the music starts again, one chair must be taken away. When the music stops again， one more player will be out.
At last, there will be two players and one chair. The one, who sits on the chair when the music stops, is the winner.
56. If ten people are playing musical chairs， you must begin with _______.

Telephone books in the United States have white, blue and yellow pages. The white pages list people with phones by last names. The blue pages contain(包含) numbers of city services, government agencies and public schools. Business and professional services are listed in a special part, the yellow pages. To make a long-distance call, you need an area code(区号). Each area in the United States has an area code. The area covered by an area code may be small or large. For example, New York City has an area code. So does the whole State of Oregon(俄勒冈州). If you want to know the area code of a place, you can look it up in the area code map printed in the front of the white pages. There are a lot of public telephones in the United States. They have their own numbers. If you are making a long-distance call on a public telephone and run out of money, give the number on your phone to the person you’re speaking to. Then hang up the receiver and he will give you a call. If you make a long-distance call and get a wrong number, call the person who operate calls and explain what has happened. This means that you can make the call again to the right

Is it OK to tell white lies?
Is it OK to tell white lies? Some think it is all right to do so out of kindness. Besides , white lies can often help people get on well with each other. Sometimes , they may make one confident.
However, many others take telling lies very seriously. They insist that white lies are lies after all. They do harm to friendship. What’s worse, lies never go far.
