1 Analyzing Text: Literature Directions Read the following short story. Then answer the questions that follow. The Laugher by Heinrich Böll 1 When someone asks me what business I am in, I am seized with embarrassment: I blush and stammer, I who am otherwise known as a man of poise. I envy people who can say: I am a bricklayer. I envy barbers, bookkeepers, and writers the simplicity of their avowal, for all these professions speak for themselves and need no lengthy explanation, while I am constrained to reply to such questions: I am a laugher. An admission of this kind demands another, since I have to answer the second question: "Is that how you make your living?" truthfully with "Yes." I actually do make a living at my laughing, and a good one too, for my laughing is commercially speaking much in demand. I am a good laugher, experienced, no one else laughs as well as I do, no one else has such command of the fine points of my art. For a long time, in order to avoid tiresome explanations, I called myself an actor, but my talents in the field of mime and elocution are so meager that I felt this designation to be too far from the truth: I love the truth, and the truth is: I am a laugher. I am neither a clown nor a comedian. I do not make people gay, I portray gaiety: I laugh like a Roman emperor, or like a sensitive schoolboy, I am as much at home in the laughter of the seventeenth century as in that of the nineteenth, and when occasion demands I laugh my way through the centuries, all classes of society, all categories of age: it is simply a skill which I have acquired, like the skill of being able to repair shoes. In my breast I harbor the laughter of America, the laughter of Africa, white, red, yellow laughter and for the right fee I let it peal out in accordance with the director's requirements. 14 I have become indispensable; I laugh on records, I laugh on tape, and television directors treat me with respect. I laugh mournfully, moderately, hysterically; I laugh like a streetcar conductor or like an apprentice in the grocery business; laughter in the morning, laughter in the evening, nocturnal laughter, and the laughter of twilight. In short: wherever and however laughter is required I do it. 18 It need hardly be pointed out that a profession of this kind is tiring, especially as I have also this is my specialty mastered the art of infectious laughter; this has also made me indispensable to third- and fourth-rate comedians, who are scared and with good reason that their audiences will miss their punch lines, so I spend most evenings in nightclubs as a kind of discreet claque, my job being to laugh infectiously during the weaker parts of the program. It has to be carefully timed: my hearty, boisterous laughter must not come too soon, but neither must it come too late, it must come just at the right spot: at the prearranged moment I burst out laughing, the whole audience roars with me, and the joke is saved. 24 But as for me, I drag myself exhausted to the checkroom, put on my overcoat, happy that I can go off duty at last. At home, I usually find telegrams waiting for me: "Urgently require your laughter. Recording Tuesday," and a few hours later I am sitting in an overheated express train bemoaning my fate. 27 I need scarcely say that when I am off duty or on vacation I have little inclination to laugh: the cowhand is glad when he can forget the cow, the bricklayer when he can forget the mortar, and carpenters usually have doors at home which don't work or drawers which are hard to open. Confectioners like sour pickles, butchers like marzipan, and the baker prefers sausage to bread; bullfighters raise pigeons for a hobby, boxers turn pale when their children have nosebleeds: I find all this quite natural, for I never laugh off duty. I am a very solemn person, and people consider me perhaps rightly so a pessimist. 32 During the first years of our married life, my wife would often say to me: "Do laugh!" but since then she has come to realize that I cannot grant her this wish. I am happy when I am free to relax my tense face muscles, my frayed spirit, in profound solemnity. Indeed, even other people's laughter gets on my nerves, since it reminds me too much of my profession. So our marriage is a quiet, peaceful one, because my wife has also forgotten how to laugh: now and again I catch her smiling, and I smile too. We converse in low tones, for I detest the noise of the nightclubs, the noise that sometimes fills the recording studios. People who do not know me think I am taciturn. Perhaps I am, because I have to open my mouth so often to laugh. 38 I go through life with an impassive expression, from time to time permitting myself a gentle smile, and I often wonder whether I have ever laughed. I think not. My brothers and sisters have always known me for a serious boy. 40 So I laugh in many different ways, but my own laughter I have never heard. 1.

Then answer the questions that follow. Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the New Deal by Jonathan Martinson 1 By the early 1930s, the Great Depression, which began with the stock market crash in 1929, had devastating effects on the United States. About twenty-five percent of the labor force could not find work. This nationwide economic crisis caused many Americans to start doubting the traditional capitalist system. As people became more and more desperate for work, fears of revolution swept the country. Without strong leadership, it seemed that the country was doomed. 5 In 1932, Franklin Delano Roosevelt ran for president on a platform of new direction in government and drastic changes in basic economic policy. He was overwhelmingly elected as the 32nd president, losing in only six states. On March 4, 1933, Roosevelt delivered an inaugural address that was full of optimism. The new president's message of a "new deal" was just what Americans wanted to hear. Roosevelt proposed "bold, persistent experimentation." He claimed that he would "take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something." Roosevelt's image as a confident and competent leader restored hope to millions of Americans. 11 Roosevelt's policies, called the New Deal, centered on economic recovery and reform. The New Deal focused on public works programs, labor reform and union rights, agricultural reforms, unemployment compensation, and reforms of the financial systems. It also created Social Security for the elderly and disabled who could not work. All together, Roosevelt began changes that would benefit even future generations.
3 15 Roosevelt was an effective communicator, which helped his New Deal gain support. For example, he spoke directly to the media. Early on, Roosevelt built a strong relationship with the press. Informative question-and-answer press conferences enabled Roosevelt to share information with reporters, who then shared the information widely in print. 18 But Roosevelt wanted to reach all Americans. He came up with the idea of "Fireside Chats." Nearly every U.S. home of the time had a radio, and Roosevelt thought this would be a better form of communication than print. He thought that the radio would enable him to reach a larger audience, including those who could not read. 21 People all across the country tuned in to Roosevelt's first "Fireside Chat" in Roosevelt spoke clearly and slowly in plain language, avoiding sophisticated financial terminology. His goal was to encourage Americans to trust the economic system again and to reinvest in banks, thus stimulating the economy. Roosevelt was successful Americans listened and acted on their president's words. Buoyed by the success of his first "Fireside Chat," Roosevelt gave about 30 more radio addresses in his 12 years in office. He discussed issues of public concern and gave updates on the actions of the U.S. government. His message reached the public and was a major factor in restoring the nation's confidence at a low point. Fireside Chat: September 6, 1936 by Franklin Delano Roosevelt 1 My Friends, I have been on a journey of husbandry. I went primarily to see at first hand conditions in the drought states, to see how effectively federal and local authorities are taking care of pressing problems of relief and also how they are to work together to defend the people of this country against the effects of future droughts. 4 I saw drought devastation in nine states. 5 I talked with families who had lost their wheat crop, lost their corn crop, lost their livestock, lost the water in their well, lost their garden and come through to the end of the summer without one dollar of cash resources, facing the winter without feed or food facing a planting season without seed to put in the ground. 8 That was the extreme case, but there are thousands and thousands of families on western farms who share the same difficulties. 10 I saw cattlemen who because of lack of grass or lack of winter feed have been compelled to sell all but their breeding stock and will need help to carry even these through the coming winter. I saw livestock kept alive only because water had been brought to them long distances in tank cars. I saw other farm families who have not lost everything but who, because they have made only partial crops, must have some form of help if they are to continue farming next spring. 14 I shall never forget the fields of wheat so blasted by heat that they cannot be harvested. I shall never forget field after field of corn stunted, earless, stripped of leaves, for what the sun left the grasshoppers took. I saw brown pastures that would not keep a cow on fifty acres. 17 Yet I would not have you think for a single minute that there is permanent disaster in these drought regions, or that the picture I saw meant depopulating these areas. No cracked earth, no blistering sun, no burning wind, no grasshoppers are a permanent match for the indomitable American farmers and stockmen and their wives and children who have carried on through desperate days, and inspire us with their self-reliance, their tenacity, and their courage. It was their fathers' task to make homes; it is their task to keep these homes; and it is our task to help them win their fight. 22 First, let me talk for a minute about this autumn and the coming winter. We have the option, in the case of families who need actual subsistence, of putting them on the dole or putting them to work. They do not want to go on the dole and they are one thousand percent right. We agree, therefore, that we must put them to work, work for a decent wage; and when we reach that decision we kill two birds with one stone, because these families will earn enough by working, not only to subsist themselves, but to buy food for their stock and seed for next year's planting. And into this scheme of things there fit of course the government lending agencies which next year, as in the past, will help with production loans. 28 Every governor with whom I have talked is in full accord with this program of providing work for these farm families, just as every governor agrees that the individual states will take care of their unemployables, but that the cost of employing those who are entirely able and willing to work must be borne by the federal government. 31 If then we know, as we do today, the approximate number of farm families who will require some form of work relief from now on through the winter, we face the question of what kind of work they ought to do. Let me make it clear that this is not a new question because it has already been answered to a greater or less extent in every one of the drought communities. Beginning in 1934, when we also had a serious drought condition, the state and federal governments cooperated in planning a large number of projects, many of them directly aimed at the alleviation of future drought conditions. In accordance with that program, for example, literally thousands of ponds or small reservoirs have been built in order to supply water for stock and to lift the level of underground water to protect wells from going dry. Thousands of wells have been drilled or deepened; community lakes have been created and irrigation projects are being pushed.
4 39 Water conservation by means such as these is being expanded as a result of this new drought all through the Great Plains area, the western corn belt, and in the states that lie further south. In the Middle West water conservation is not so pressing a problem. And here the work projects run more to soil erosion control and the building of farm-to-market roads. 42 Spending like this is not waste. It would spell future waste if we did not spend for such things now. These emergency work projects provide money to buy food and clothing for the winter; they keep the livestock on the farm; they provide seed for a new crop, and, best of all, they will conserve soil and water in the future in those areas that are most frequently hit by drought. 45 If, for example, in some local place the water table continues to drop and the topsoil to blow away, the land values will disappear with the water and the soil. People on the farms will drift into nearby cities; the cities will have no farm trade and the workers in the city factories and stores will have no jobs. Property values in those cities will decline. If, on the other hand, the farms within that area remain as farms with better water supply and no erosion, the farm population will stay on the land and prosper and the nearby cities will prosper too. Property values will increase instead of disappearing. That is why it is worth our while as a nation to spend money in order to save money. 51 I have, however, used the argument in relation only to a small area it holds good in its effect on the nation as a whole. Every state in the drought area is now doing and always will do business with every state outside it. The very existence of the men and women working in the clothing factories of New York, making clothes worn by farmers and their families; of the workers in the steel mills in Pittsburgh, in the automobile factories of Detroit, and in the harvester factories of Illinois, depend upon the farmers' ability to purchase the commodities they produce. In the same way it is the purchasing power of the workers in these factories in the cities that enables them and their wives and children to eat more beef, more pork, more wheat, more corn, more fruit and more dairy products, and to buy more clothing made from cotton, wool and leather. In a physical and a property sense, as well as in a spiritual sense, we are members one of another.
