Li Qiu is a boy of fifteen and studying in Grade Three at Oak school. His family lives outside the town. His parents have a farm and grow a lot of vegetables on it and they often sell them in the town. These years they’ve built a new building and bought a tractor, a motorbike，a color television，a fridge and other things.
Two years ago，Li Qiu began to study in a middle school. He does well in all his lessons and now he’s becoming more and more interested in science. He likes to try out new ideas and hopes to be an inventor. This term he’s learned electricity (电学). He always watches TV carefully. Last Saturday，when he came back home，his parents were working in the fields. He looked at the new color TV for a while. Then he began to take apart (拆) it. Three hours later his mother came in and saw him fixing the TV set. She was surprised and asked，“What are you doing here，Li Qiu?”
“I took apart the TV just now.”
“Don’t worry about it，Mummy,” said the boy “I only want to know how it works.”

A characteristic of American culture that has become almost a tradition is to respect the self-made man – the man who has risen to the top through his own efforts, usually beginning by working with his hands. While the leader in business or industry or the college professor occupies a higher social position and commands greater respect in the community than the common laborer or even the skilled factory worker, he may take pains to point out that his father started life in America as a farmer or laborer of some sort.
This attitude toward manual (体力的) labor is now still seen in many aspects of American life. One is invited to dinner at a home that is not only comfortably but even luxuriously (豪华地) furnished and in which there is every evidence of the fact that the family has been able to afford foreign travel, expensive hobbies, and college education for the children; yet the hostess probably will cook the dinner herself, will serve it herself and will wash dishes afterward; furthermore, the dinner will not consist merely of something quickly and easily assembled from contents of various cans and a cake or a pie bought at the nearby bakery. On the contrary, the hostess usually takes pride in careful preparation of special dishes. A professional may talk about washing the car, digging in his flowerbeds, painting the house. His wife may even help with these things, just as he often helps her with the dishwashing. The son who is away at college may wait on table and wash dishes for his living, or during the summer he may work with a construction gang on a highway in order to pay for his education.
