They came to the United States as children with little idea，if any，of what it meant to overstay a visa.They enrolled in public schools，learned English，earned high school diplomas.Like many of their classmates，they pondered college choices.But as undocumented immigrants in Maryland，they then had to confront the reality that they must pay two to three times what former high school classmates pay to attend the state’s public colleges.It is a rule that，for many students of modest means，puts a college education out of reach，with one exception：Montgomery College.
That is why Josue Aguiluz，21，born in Honduras，and Ricardo Campos，23，born in El Salvador—and numerous others like them—landed at the community college.There，they study and wait for a verdict from Maryland voters on a Nov.6 ballot measure that may determine whether they can afford to advance to a four-year college.
“I know people in Maryland believe in education，” Campos said the other day at the student center on the Rockville campus.“I know they are going to vote for Question 4.I’m hanging on their vote.”
Question 4 asks voters to affirm or strike down a law that the legislature passed last year，known as Maryland’s version of the “Dream Act，” which granted certain undocumented immigrants the ability to obtain in-state tuition at public colleges and universities.The subsidy comes with conditions.Among them：To take advantage，students must first go to a two-year community college.
The law was pushed to a referendum after opponents mounted a lightning petition drive that showed the depth of division over illegal immigration across the state and the nation.Critics say discounting tuition for students who lack permission to be in the country is an unjustified giveaway of what they believe will amount to tens of millions of tax dollars a year.
“When an undocumented student enters the system，it is a net loss of revenue，” said Del.Patrick L.McDonough (R-Baltimore County).“It is a simple mathematical argument.Put your emotion and your passion aside，and get out your calculator.”
There is no count of the number of students statewide who would be eligible for benefits under the law.Estimates range from several hundred to a few thousand.
A Washington Post poll this month found that a solid majority of likely voters favored the law：59 percent support it，and 35 percent are opposed.If the law is affirmed，Maryland would join about a dozen other states with laws or policies providing in-state tuition benefits to undocumented immigrants.Texas became the first in 2001.
Experts say Maryland’s version is the only one that requires students to go through community college first.That means the state’s 16 community colleges could become a pipeline for undocumented students in public higher education if the measure is approved.
Montgomery College is already a magnet for such students.It offers the same low tuition to any student who graduated within the past three years from a Montgomery County high school.
21.What reality did the undocumented immigrants in Maryland have to confront？
A.It is impossible for them to get college education.
B.They cannot afford to study in Montgomery College.
C.They must pay more tuition than their peers to get high school diplomas.
D.The must pay more tuition than their peers at the state’s public college.
22.What did Campos mean by saying “I’m hanging on their vote” in PARAGRAPH 3？
A.He meant that he was confident about the result of the vote.
B.He meant that the voters’ decision was crucial to his future.
C.He meant that he had to attend a community college if the voters said NO.
D.He meant that he might have to leave the country if the voters asid NO.
23.What does “them” in PARAGRAPH 4 refer to？
C.Undocumented immigrants. D.Public colleges and universities.
24.Which of the following words best describes the attitude of Maryland citizens toward discounting tuition for undocumented immigrants？
25.Which of the following is the best title for this passage？
A.Maryland’s Version of the “Dream Act”
B.Undocumented Students’ Hope for “Dream”
C.Opportunities for Undocumented Immigrants in Maryland
D.Montgornery College—A Magnet for Undocumneted Immigrants
We had been wanting to expand our children’s horizons by taking them to a place that was unlike anything we’d been exposed to during our travels in Europe and the United States.In thinking about what was possible from Geneva，where we are based，we decided on a trip to Istanbul，a two-hour plane ride from Zurich.
We envisioned the trip as a prelude to more exotic ones，perhaps to New Delhi or Bangkok later this year，but thought our 11-and 13-year-olds needed a first step away from manicured boulevards and pristine monuments.
What we didn’t foresee was the reaction of friends，who warned that we were putting our children “in danger，” referring vaguely，and most incorrectly，to disease，terrorism or just the unknown.To help us get acquainted with the peculiarities of Istanbul and to give our children a chance to choose what they were particularly interested in seeing，we bought an excellent guidebook and read it thoroughly before leaving.
Friendly warnings didn’t change our planning，although we might have more prudently checked with the U.S.State Department’s list of troublespots.We didn’t see a lot of children among the foreign visitors during our six-day stay in Istanbul，but we found the tourist areas quite safe，very interesting and varied enough even to suit our son，whose oft-repeated request is that we not see “every single” church and museum in a given city.
Vaccinations weren’t needed for the city，but we were concerned about adapting to the water for a short stay.So we used bottled water for drinking and brushing our teeth，a precaution that may seem excessive，but we all stayed healthy.
Taking the advice of a friend，we booked a hotel a 20-minute walk from most of Istanbul’s major tourist sites.This not only got us some morning exercise，strolling over the Karakoy Bridge，but took us past a colorful assortment of fishermen，vendors and shoe shiners.
From a teenager and pre-teen’s view，Istanbul street life is fascinating since almost everything can be bought outdoors.They were at a good age to spend time wandering the labyrinth of the Spice Bazaar，where shops display mounds of pungent herbs in sacks.Doing this with younger children would be harder simply because the streets are so packed with people；it would be easy to get lost.
For our two，whose buying experience consisted of department stores and shopping mall boutiques，it was amazing to discover that you could bargain over price and perhaps end up with two of something for the price of one.They also learned to figure out the relative value of the Turkish lira，not a small matter with its many zeros.
Being exposed to Islam was an important part of our trip.Visiting the mosques，especially the enormous Blue Mosque，was our first glimpse into how this major religion is practiced.Our children’s curiosity already had been piqued by the five daily calls to prayer over loudspeakers in every corner of the city，and the scarves covering the heads of many women.
Navigating meals can be troublesome with children，but a kebab，bought on the street or in restaurants，was unfailingly popular.Since we had decided this trip was not for gourmets，kebabs spared us the agony of trying to find a restaurant each day that would suit the adults’ desire to try something new amid children’s insistence that the food be served immediately.Gradually，we branched out to try some other Turkish specialties.
Although our son had studied Islam briefly，it is impossible to be prepared for every awkward question that might come up，such as during our visits to the Topkapi Sarayi，the Ottoman Sultans’ palace.No guides were available so it was do-it-yourself，using our guidebook，which cheated us of a lot of interesting history and anecdotes that a professional guide could provide.Next time，we resolved to make such arrangements in advance.
On this trip，we wandered through the magnificent complex，with its imperial treasures，its courtyards and its harem.The last required a bit of explanation that we would have happily left to a learned third party.

The trick of eating healthily is remembering that no food in itself is good or bad；eating properly depends on eating the right variety of food in the right amount.Too much of even the most “healthy” food can lead to illness and disorders.
If you like a snack，avoid chocolate and crisps and head for fruit，filled rolls，soup and baked potatoes instead.Sugar-free breakfast cereals are also a good bet.
