The conservatism of the early English colonists in North America, their strong attachment to the English way of doing things, would play a major part in the furniture that was made in New England. The very tools that the first New England furniture makers used were, after all, not much different  from those  used for centuries-  even  millennia:  basic  hammers,  saws,  chisels,  planes, augers, compasses,  and measures.  These  were  the tools  used  more  or less by all people who worked with wood: carpenters, barrel makers, and shipwrights. At most the furniture makers might have had planes with special edges or more dedicate chisels, but there could not have been much specialization in the early years of the colonies.

The furniture makers in those early dedicates of the 1600s were known as “joiners,” for the primary method of constructing furniture, at least among the English of this time, was that of mortise-and-tenon  joinery. The mortise is the hole chiseled and cut into one piece of wood, while the tenon is the tongue or protruding element shaped from another piece of wood so that it fits into the mortise;  and another  small  hole is then drilled (with the auger)  through  the Mortise end and the tenon so that a whittled peg can secure the joint- thus the term “joiner”. Panels were fitted into slots on the basic frames. This kind of construction was used for making everything from houses to chests.

Relatively little hardware was used during this period. Some nails- forged by hand- were used, but no screws or glue. Hinges were often made of leather, but metal hinges were also used. The cruder varieties were made by blacksmiths in the colonies, but the finer metal elements were imported. Locks and escutcheon plates- the latter to shield the wood from the metal key- would often be imported.

Above all, what the early English colonists imported was the knowledge of, familiarity with, and dedication to the traditional types and designs of furniture they knew in England.

 Câu 36:   The phrase “attachment to” is closest in meaning to ______.

A. curiosity about          B. control of             C. distance from        D. preference for

Câu 37:   The word “protruding” is closest in meaning to ______.

A. projecting              B. important                   C. parallel                   D. simple

Câu 38:   The relationship of a mortise and a tenon is most similar to that of ______.

A. a cup and a saucer                              B. a book and its cover

C. a lock and a key                                D. a hammer and a nail

Câu 39:   For what purpose did woodworkers use an auger?

A. To measure a panel

 B. To make a tenon    

C. To drill a hole    

D. To whittle a peg

Câu 40:   Which of the following was NOT used in the construction of colonial furniture?

A. Nails                     B. Hinges                       C. Mortise                      D. Screws

Câu 41:   The author implies that colonial metalworkers were ______.

A. frequently employed by joiners             B. more conservative than other colonists

C. unable to make elaborate parts             D. more skilled than woodworkers

A. copy                    B. protect                       C. decorate            D. shape

VI. Read the following passage and mark the letter A,B,C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to   each of the questions from 46 to 55.


Paul  Watson  is  an  environmental  activist.  He  is  a  man  who  believes  that  he  must  do something, not just talk about doing something. Paul believes in protecting endangered animals, and he protects them in controversial ways. Some people think that Watson is a hero and admire him very much. Other people think that he is a criminal.

On July 16th,  1979, Paul Watson and his crew were on his ship, which is called the Sea Shepherd. Watson and the people who work on the Sea Shepherd were hunting on the Atlantic Ocean near Portugal. However, they had a strange prey; instead of hunting for animals, their prey was a ship, the Sierra. The Sea Shepherd found the Sierra, ran into it and sank it. As a result, the Sierra never returned to the sea. The Sea Shepherd, on the other hand, returned to its home in Canada. Paul Watson and his workers thought that they had been successful.

The Sierra had been a whaling ship, which had operated illegally. The captain and the crew of the Sierra did not obey any of the international laws that restrict whaling. Instead, they killed as many whales as they could, quickly cut off the meat, and froze it. Later, they sold the whale meat in countries where it is eaten.

Paul  Watson  tried  to  persuade  the  international  whaling  commission  to  stop  the  Sierra. However, the commission did very little, and Paul became impatient. He decided to stop the Sierra and other whaling ships in any way that he could. He offered to pay $25,000 to anyone who sank any illegal whaling ship, and he sank the Sierra. He acted because he believes that the whales must be protected.  Still,  he  acted  without  the  approval  of  the  government;  therefore,  his  actions  were controversial.

Paul Watson is not the only environmental activist. Other men and women are also fighting to protect the Earth. Like Watson, they do not always have the approval of their governments, and like Watson, they have become impatient. Yet, because of their concern for the environment, they will act to protect it.
