I. TEXT: TRAINING SCIENTISTS IN THE USSR
Soviet people learn to love science even while they are at school. At higher schools, for the first time, students begin to take part in scientific and engineering work. Besides their studies, they carry on research in different students' groups and societies. Professors help students to develop their abilities and discover in which field of science and technics they will employ these abilities.
The main way in which research workers and higher-school teachers get their scientific training is the post-graduate course. The establishment of such courses in 1925 laid the foundation for the training of scientists.
Young people who graduate from schools of higher learning and want to take a post-graduate course do so after two years of practical work. They take examinations in special subject, Marxist-Leninist philosophy and foreign languages.
In our country we also have an extra-mural course of post-graduate training for people who want to do scientific investigation and do not want to leave work.
All post-graduates study free of charge. Those who take a full-time post-graduate course get state allowances. Universities and institutes provide post-graduates free of charge with all scientific instruments and experimental equipment which enable them to carry on research. They work under experienced scientific advisers.
But that is not the only way to train future scientists, Another way is to create conditions for specialists to carry on research in different institutions, factories, laboratories, etc., and present a thesis for a scientific degree after they finish their work.
The Soviet State provides young people with everything necessary to prepare for a scientific career and enable them to make important contributions to the development of Soviet science. In our country a scientific worker does not look for a job, the job looks for him.

Text: SCIENTIFIC IMAGINATION
Our science makes terrific demands on the imagination. The degree of imagination that is required is much more extreme than that required for some of the ancient ideas. The modern ideas are much harder to imagine. We use a lot of tools, though. We use mathematical equations and rules, and make a lot of pictures.
The whole question of imagination in science is often misunderstood by people in other disciplines. They try to test our imagination in the following way. They say, "Here is a picture of some people in a situation. What do you imagine will happen next?" When we say, "I can’t imagine", they may think we have a weak imagination. They overlook the fact that whatever we are allowed to imagine in science must be consistent with everything else we know: that the electric fields and the waves we talk about are not just some happy thoughts which we are free to make as we wish, but ideas which must be consistent with all the laws of physics we know. We can't allow ourselves to seriously imagine things which are obviously in contradiction to the known laws of nature. And so our kind of imagination is quite a difficult game.
One has to have the imagination to think of something that has never been heard of before, never bean seen before. At the same time the thoughts are restricted in a strait jacket, so to speak, limited by the conditions that come from our knowledge of the way nature really is. The problem of creating something which is new, but which is consistent with everything which has been seen before, is one of extreme difficulty.
Answer the following questions on the text.
What should scientific imagination be based upon?
Why is it difficult to imagine things in science?
What is scientific imagination according to the text?
When does scientific imagination stimulate research?
When is it useless or even harmful?
What do you think of the future of physics (chemistry, welding, etc.)?
Along what lines will it develop?
I shall start by describing ...
To begin with, one can say...
It shall be noted (mentioned, observed, emphasized, pointed out) that ...
It is evident (obvious, unlikely, doubtful) that...
I think (believe, suggest) that ...
What I mean (want) to say (to show, to express, to prove, to emphasize) is that…
What I (we) find in fact is that ...
The problem is the following.
As far as I can judge ...
As far as I know ...
As far as I remember…
In my opinion ...
From my point of view…
To my knowledge…
To my mind…
For all I know…
If I am not mistaken…
To tell the truth…
I am interested to know why...
I'd like to know ...
I have no idea…
It seems clear ( possible, obvious, surprising, unexpected, doubtful) that ...
As a matter of fact.

I. TEXT: NIELS BOHR
Bohr is a Danish physicist, one of the most ingenious interpreters of his generation of his problems of modern theoretical physics. Born at Copenhagen on October 7, 1885, he did physics at the University of Copenhagen, obtaining his doctor’s degree in 1913 and proceeded immediately to Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge for further study under Sir J.J.Thomson. In 1912 he moved to Manchester University, where he was associated with Ernest Rutherford in latter’s atomic research. In 1914, following a year as lecturer at the University of Copenhagen Bohr returned to Manchester, remaining there until 1916, when he was made professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Copenhagen.
In 1920, largely due to Bohr’s efforts, the Institute of Theoretical Physics was established at Copenhagen. He became its first head and under him the Institute became an important centre for the development of theoretical and experimental physics. Prior to World War II Bohr’s Institute had become the world center for atomic physics.
Just before World War II Bohr advanced the idea that the compound nucleus was fundamental to the phenomena of nuclear disintegration, a concept that proved fruitful in later work. In collaboration with John Archibald Wheeler he proposed a theory of nuclear fission that lad to atomic research which produced atomic bomb.
In 1943, after the Nazis had occupied Denmark, Bohr escaped to England in a small boat. Making the way to the United States, he took a leading part in the atomic bomb project, working mainly at the laboratory established in early 1943 at Los Angeles in New Mexico. In 1944 - 1945 Bohr served as adviser to the Scientific Staff of the Manhattan Project. In 1945 Bohr returned to Copenhagen to resume his duties as director of the Institute of Theoretical Physics.
Bohr’s great achievement was recognized internatially by the Nobel prize awarded to him in 1922 for his study of atomic structure and radiation. In 1957 he was the first recipient of the Atoms for Peace award. That same year at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he delivered his lecture on the philosophical Lessons of Atomic Progress.

Text: NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL
The largest and most diversified program of civil research in Canada is carried out by the National Research Council (NBC). Its laboratories are engaged in many investigations of interest to Canadian Industry. Some are undertaken on the initiative of the council itself in order to develop promising ideas of its own scientists; some are taken up on recommendations of the Council’s associate committees, which include representatives from industry who are interested in particular problems; and others are undertaken in co-operation with individual companies. Routine test work is avoided except when the Council is asked to certify performance of equipment as an independent body.
Each problem presented to the Council is considered on its merits and dealt with in what seems the most practical way: those of national interest may be undertaken at the expense of the Council; the expense of company problems of less than national scope may be shared by the company and NRC; when facilities are not available elsewhere, specific industrial research may be undertaken by NRC, the results of which become the property of the company.
