Between the Revolutionary period and the World War I, the United States post office was set out to improve
transportation of the post office mails. From those early days to the present, the post office has helped develop and
subsidize every new mode transportation in the United States. Transportation has been the most important element in
mail delivery. Even when the general public had still suspected of the security of a new means of transportation, the post

1


office experimented with inventions that offered potential for moving the mail faster, occasionally suffering
embarrassment, ridicule, or even abuse in the process.
As mail delivery evolved from foot to horseback, stagecoach, steamboat, railroad, automobile, and airplane, with
intermediate and overlapping use of balloons, and helicopters, post office mail contracts ensured the income necessary to
build the great highways, rail lines, and airways that eventually spanned the continent.
By the turn of the 19th century, the U.S. Post Office had purchased a number of stagecoaches for operation on the
nation’s better post roads – a post road being any road on which the mail travels – and continued to encourage new
designs to improve passenger comfort and carry mail safely.

the Asian Athletic Federation. A preparatory was set up to draft the charter for the Asian amateur athletic federation. In February,
1949, the Asian athletic federation was formed and used the name Asian Games Federation. It was formed and used the name
Asian Games Federation. It was decided to hold the first Asian Games in 1951 in New Delhi the capital of India. They added that

C. READING
* Circle the item among A, B, C or D that best answers the question about the passage.
I like to be near water – sea, lake or river. That I probably because I was born in a village by the sea, and I have
lived most of my life close to water. When I am in some place which is far from lake, river and sea, I am restless and I
always feel that there is something missing, even though it is sometimes hard for me to decide what it is.
Of course, the sports I like are the ones which need water – sailing, rowing and swimming. It is possible to swim
in small swimming pools, but rowing and sailing are impossible without a lot of water. Rowing is best in a river and
sailing on the sea or a big lake, but one can do some sailing on a river and one can certainly row on a lake or the sea
when the weather is good.
Of the three sports – swimming, rowing and sailing – I like rowing best because it is the easiest to continue during
the winter, when the water is too cold for comfortable swimming and the sea is often too rough for sailing. Even on the
coldest day one row, only ice on the water or thick fog can stop one. Sometimes it is so cold when I go out rowing that
drop of water freeze wherever they fall. In such weather, it is not very pleasant to swim as one cannot stay in the water
very long. However, when is rowing, one gets warmer the longer one goes on.
