to an apartment in New York City. Momand looked around him and noticed that many people do things just to keep up with their neighbors. He saw the funny side of it and started to write a series of short stories. He called it “Keeping up with the Joneses”,because “Jones”is a very common name in the United States.“Keeping up with the Joneses”came to mean keeping up with the people around you. Momand's series appeared in different newspapers across the country for over 28 years. People never seem to get tired of keeping up with the Joneses. That is one reason why they read the “right” books, go to the “right” universities and eat in the right” “ restaurants. Every city has an area where people want to live because others will think better of them if they do. And there are “Joneses” every city of the world. But one must get tired of trying to keep up with the Joneses, because no in matter what one does, Mr Jones seems always to be ahead.

Some of today's teenagers are big fans of such a look. But recently this trend has been at the center of an argument in Italian middle schools. The headmaster of a school in central Italy has asked students to stop wearing low-rise jeans that expose underwear and parts of the body. His request came after a class trip, when he saw one boy's baggy trousers slide to his feet. He pointed out that this way of dressing is not suitable for school. But in Italy, a nation that takes fashion very seriously, the suggestion caused a debate among parents, teachers and students. The issue is whether the headmaster's request will limit students' freedom? or whether dress in Italian schools is too casual. A parents' group praised the move in favor of good taste, while others advised schools to stop worrying about fashion and fix up old school buildings.“We do not want to kick fashion out, the headmaster explained, “but extrems (极端) of fashion like this ” are not right in school.” Many other schools have now requested that their students also stop wearing such trousers. Most students have simply ignored the request. Ludovica Gaudio,
  14, wore extremely low trousers exposing orange underwear in class. It was cold, so she wore a matching orange scarf. Another 14-year-old said she would probably respect the request, simply for practical reasons. “I don't really feel comfortable in those sort of jeans,” said Sarah Lattanzi, “in winter, when dressed like that, it's quite cold and I am afraid my stomach will ache.”
  52. What led to the argument in Italian middle schools? A. Students' craze for fashions. B. Clothes that are too exposing.
C. Students' ignoring dress codes(着装规则) D. Students' underwear.
  53. Which of the following supports the headmaster's request? A. Fashion should be taken seriously. B. Fashion should not be followed in school.
