The ballpoint pen

Most of us have at least one, but how did this popular item evolve?

One morning in 1945, a crowd of 5,000 people jammed the entrance of Gimbels Department Store in New York. The day before, Gimbels had placed a full-page advertisement in the New York Times for a wonderful new invention, the ballpoint pen. The advertisement described the pen as 'fantastic' and 'miraculous'. Although they were expensive, $12.50 each, all 10,000 pens in stock were sold on the first day.

In fact, this 'new' pen was not new at all. In 1888, John Loud, a leather manufacturer, had invented a pen with a reservoir of ink and a rolling ball. However, his pen was never produced, and efforts by other people to produce a commercially successful one failed too. The main problem was with the ink. If it was too thin, the ink leaked out of the pen. If it was too thick, it didn't come out of the pen at all.

Almost fifty years later, in 1935, a newspaper editor in Hungary thought he spent too much time filling his pens with ink. He decided to invent a better kind of pen. With the help of his brother, who was a chemist, he produced a ballpoint pen that didn't leak when the pen wasn't being used. The editor was called Ladislas Biro, and it was his name that people would associate more than any other with the ballpoint pen.

By chance, Biro met Augustine Justo, the Argentinian president. Justo was so impressed with Biro's invention that he invited him to set up a factory in Argentina. În 1943, the first Biro pens were produced. Unfortunately, they were not popular, since the pen needed to be held in a vertical position for the ink to come out. Biro redesigned the pen with a better ball, and in 1944 the new product was on sale throughout Argentina.

It was a North American, Milton Reynolds, who introduced the ballpoint pen to the USA. Copying Biro's design, he produced the version that sold so well at Gimbels. Another American, Patrick Frawley, improved the design and in 1950 began producing a pen he called the Papermate. It was an immediate success, and within a few years, Papermates were selling in their millions around the world.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions

Perhaps the greatest invention in history is writing. The flexibility of writing is perhaps the key to much of its power. But it may be that writing's very flexibility can be a curse as well as a blessing. A common concern with oral histories is the possibility that the truth will get distorted over time and that rumors will become truth. Written history evidences the same problem.

Throughout the centuries that writing has existed, forged documents have also existed. An ancient letter supposedly written by the Roman emperor Constantine in the 4h century A.D. shows that the duration of a document is not proof of its truth. For many centuries, the Catholic Church relied on this letter to enforce the legitimacy of its rule and its land. The letter from Constantine stated that he had become a Christian and donated a portion of his land to the Pope and to future Popes in the Catholic Church. Although it is true that Constantine converted to Christianity, the letter itself was discovered to be a forgery in the 15th century, and probably originated in the 8th century.

In addition to historical documents, great literature has also been forged. William Shakespeare, who died in 1616, is perhaps the most famous author in the world. Wouldn't someone benefit if a long-lost play was found? In 1796, William Henry Ireland announced that he had indeed found such a play entitled Vortigern. He sold it to a London theater producer, but as soon as he handed over the script, the producer immediately realized it was fake. He decided to produce it anyway as an April Fool's Day joke.

Some fake documents are easily debunked by highly literate people by comparing the suspicious document to writing that was definitely written by the author in question. If the writing style does not correspond to the known sample, it is not hard to declare the writing to be fake. However, it is not always so easy to use writing style, grammatical patterns, and word usage as a basis for identifying the real author of a of William Shakespeare.

In 1989, literature professor Don Foster identified a poem called "A Funeral Elegy" as the work of William Shakespeare. The work was added to collections of Shakespeare’s work, but in 2002 it was re- classified as the work of another writer - and Foster, now aware of his mistake, agreed.

(Adapted from Reading Explorer 5, Nancy Douglas et al., 2012)
