  2007年6月:Should one expect a reward when doing a good deed




  Lei Feng, a communist soldier, who "devoted his limited life to the limitless cause of serving the people", has long been set as an outstanding example to encourage us to spare no efforts to help those in need, whereas, with the passage of time, people voice different opinions towards doing good deeds.

  Some insists "A good turn deserves another", as the old saying goes, which indicates that a good deed ought to bring about a reward, the motivation or the stimulus for the favor. Meanwhile, others believe good deeds belong to voluntary work, purely out of willingness, which has nothing to do with expectation for rewards.

  As to me, good deeds are supposed to result from spontaneous reaction confronted with certain circumstances, ranging from giving up one seat to a silver-haired passenger aboard the bus, donating blood to the designated organization by Red Cross to traveling to the remote and poverty-stricken areas to serve as a volunteer for a whole year. In short, rewards are by no means the trigger or purpose for intention of conducting good deeds, no matter how trivial or stunning they are.

  enrollment expansion;admitting more students into universities

  Recent years has witnessed a steady increase in college enrollment.

  High-school students welcome the practice, for they would have better chance of receiving higher education.

  With a growing number of students enrolled, a tough issue most universities face is inadequate teaching staff and facilities.

  However, one can never equate a college degree with a better job or future.

  4 卷面整洁;细致检查

  In recent years, there is a steady increase in college enrollment. To many high-school students, it's definitely good news, for they would have better chance of receiving higher education.

  You don't have to look very far to find out the advantages of the increased college enrollment. For one thing, it lessens the worries of both high school graduates and their parents. Besides,increased college enrollment can contribute to raise the educational level of our nation. What's more, increased college enrollment can provide more students with specialized knowledge, thus serving our development in a positive way.

  On the other hand, we can not deny that there are some potential problems about increased college enrollment. To begin with, with the increased number of students, the shortage of teaching staff and facilities becomes clearly seen. Worst of all, increased college enrollment leads to increased competition in the job market.

  It's not an easy task to tell whether the tendency should be encouraged. As to me, it's laudable to grant more students higher education. But a college degree is by no means a guarantee for a better job or future. To cast a promising career, we need a lot more abilities which we can not learn from college.
