問題 1

May 30—A Bryce Rollins retrospective will be shown from June 17 to September 15 at the Schulz Museum to celebrate the museum’s 35th anniversary. Approximately 120 works, including paintings from the private collection of Ruth and Steve Whitman that have never been on public display, will be shown. Since the early 1970s, Rollins—who possesses a unique brand of cynicism—has continued to release striking works that satirize the complications brought on by modernization. The section that houses Schulz permanent collection of African art will be closed during the Rollins retrospective. It is scheduled to reopen on September 20.

BOOK OF THE MONTH
reviewed by Jan Mizuno

How to Win the Losing Game
Author: Kate Hersey
128 pages with photos
Conrad & Smith, $15.95

Kate Hersey has earned a reputation as one of the country’s foremost gurus of diet and fitness. The fact that 10 of her 15 publications have topped the Brooklyn Times Bestseller List is proof that many think of her as the savior to a nation plagued with obesity. Although the title of her latest book hints at step-by-step instructions for dieting, the content has to do more with literacy than practicality. Divided into several sections—each with a theme—the book is an easy read, informative and full of the contagious energy and humor that is the hallmark of the Kate Hersey persona.

問題 2

TO: Billing Department, Bay City Gasworks
FROM: Marsha Davies
DATE: February 23
SUBJECT: Mistake in my bill

Dear Billing Department Staff,

I’m writing with regard to the late charge that was listed on my gas bill this month. It is my understanding that the late charge was incurred because it was assumed that I didn’t pay last month’s gas bill on time. However, according to my records, I sent a check for the full amount on January 20—well in advance of the due date of January 25—and my bank statement says the check was cashed on the 27th.

There must have been some mistake, and I would appreciate it if you could look into the matter and contact me as soon as possible.

FUKUOKA—Kyushu Ceramics announced Friday that it will revise its projected profits for this fiscal quarter. Profits projected at JPY550 billion have been amended to JPY420 billion. According to the spokesperson for Kyushu Ceramics, the main reason for the revision is the unexpected two-week closure of the company’s main factory in Oita Prefecture due to the historic typhoon that hit the entire Kyushu region in August. With the reopening of the company’s Oita factory, and the launch of Kyushu Ceramics China, economists predict the company will recover fully by the company’s final fiscal quarter in March, if not sooner.

問題 1

TO: Marie Abbott
FROM: Sam Bartruff
DATE: November 3
SUBJECT: Budget proposal

I’m working on the budget proposal and wanted to confirm some things with you. You mentioned in last week’s meeting that the proposal deadline is November 9. I didn’t realize it at the time, but the 9th is a Sunday. Even if the deadline were changed to Monday the 10th, I’m afraid that wouldn’t give me enough time to finish it. I’m waiting for the people in charge to submit some figures—specifically, this year’s advertising and building maintenance costs. I’ve been told I would have the building maintenance data by Thursday. Advertising is in the midst of a campaign that is scheduled to end on Friday, which means they should be able to give me what I need by early next week. If everything goes smoothly, you will have the proposal by Thursday the 13th. I appreciate your patience.
