35.One day in 1965, when I was a library worker at school, a teacher came to me. She had a student who finished his work before all the others and needed something more difficult for him to do. “Could you help me in the library?” she asked. I said, “Send him along.”
Soon, a golden-haired boy appeared. “Do you have a job for me?” he asked. I told him about a system for sorting books. He picked up the idea immediately. Then I showed him some cards for some unreturned books that I thought had been returned but not recorded. Maybe some books were put on wrong places. He said, “Is it a kind of a detective（侦探）job?” I answered yes, and then began his work.
He had found three books with wrong cards by the time his teacher opened the door and said, “Time for rest!” he argued for finishing the finding job, but the teacher won.
The next morning, he arrived early, “I want to finish these books,” he said. At the end of the day, when he asked to work with me more often, it was easy for me to say yes.
After a few weeks I found a note on my desk, inviting me to dinner at the boy’s home. At the end of a pleasant evening, his mother declared that the family would be moving to another school. Her son’s first concern, she said, was leaving the library. “Who will find the lost books?” he asked. When the time came, it was hard to say goodbye. Though at the beginning he had seemed an ordinary boy, his strong feeling of interest had made him different.

40.China’s former volleyball star Lang Ping has been invited to coach the US women’s national team for the Beijing 2008 Olympics. But China’s sports media said the offer would be difficult to accept. Lang, who is presently coaching a club team in Italy’s professional volleyball league, told sina.com that she was considering the offer by the US Volleyball Association. “Right now I’m still considering their offer but I will answer them soon,” Lang said. “If I don’t take the job, I have to give them enough time to find someone else.”
Lang, 45，won Olympic gold in 1984. She later coached the Chinese women to silver at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and the 1998 World Championships. She has also coached at New Mexico University in the United States where her daughter was born and lives.
