5. Ang sumusunod ay isang talumpati na may pamagat na SA KABATAAN na sinulat ni Onofre Pagsanghan.

Isa sa mga salitang napag-aralan natin sa wikang Pilipino ay ang salitang NABANSOT.
Kapang ang isang bagay daw ay dapat pang lumaki ngunit ito'y tumigil na sa paglaki, ang bagay na ito raw ay NABANSOT. Marami raw uri ng pagkabansot ngunit ay pinakamalungkot na uri raw ay ang pagkabansot ng isipan, ng puso at ng diwa.
Ang panahon ng kabataan ay panahon ng paglaki, ngunit ang ating paglaki ay kailangang paglaki, at pag-unlad ng ating buong katauhan, hindi lamang ng ating sukat at timbang. Kung ga-poste man ang ating taas at ga-pison man ang ating bigat ngunit kung ang pag-iisip naman nati'y ga-kulisap lamang kay pangit na kabansutan. Kung tumangkad man tayong tangkad-kawayan at bumilog man tayong bilog-tapayan, ngunit kung tayo nama'y tulad nibondyingay di mapagkatiwalaan-anong laking kakulangan. Kung magkakatawan tayong katawangTarzanat mapatalas ang ating isipang sintalas ng kay Rizal, ngunit kung ang ating kalooban nama'y itim na duwende ng kasamaan-anong kapinsalaan para sa kinabukasan.
Kinabukasan, kabataan, tayo raw ang pag-asa ng Inang Bayan. Tayo raw ang maghahatid sa kanya sa langit ng kasaganaan at karangalan o hihils sa kanya sa putik ng kahirapan at kahihiyan. Ang panahon ng pagkilos ay ngayon, hindi bukas, hindi sa isang taon. Araw-araw ay tumutuwid tayong palangit or bumabaluktod tayong paputik. Tamang-tama ang sabi ng ating mga ninunong kung ano raw ang kinamihasnan ay siyang pagkakatandaan. Huwag nating akalaing makapagpapabaya tayo ng ating pag-aaral ngayon at sa araw ng bukas ay bigla tayong magiging mga dalubhasang magpapaunlad sa bayan. Huwag nating akalaing makapaglulublob tayo ngayon sa kalaswaaan at kahalayan at sa mahiwagang araw ng bukas sigla tayong magiging ulirang mga magulang.
Kabataan, tunay na pag-ibig sa bayan, ang tunay na nasyonalismo, ay wala sa tamis ng pangarap wala rin sa pagpag ng dila. Ang tunay na pag-ibig ay nasa pawis ng gawa.

Alin sa mga sumusunod ang mensahe ng talumpati?
A. Ang mataas na paniniwala at taimtim na pananalig ay kailangang taglayin upang ang hangarin sa buhay ay ating kamtin.
B. Ang panahon ng kabataan ay panahon ng paglaki at pagbabagong makabuluhan.
C. Ang gawa ang siyang sukat ng kadakilaan.
D. Ang kabataan ay siyang pag-asa ng bayan.

6. Ano ang kahulugan ng taludtod na ito?

Ang anak man ay alagaan sa marubdob na pagsuyo sikapin ma sa sarili'y huwag siyang maging luko talipandas sa paglaki na sa sama marahuyo sa lahi mo't sa Bayan may isang tinik sa balaho.

19. Below is a biographical sketch.

Success often comes to those with humble beginnings, Elvis Aron Presley was born on January 8, 1935, in Tupelo, Mississippi. He first sang in a church choir and taught himself to play the guitar, but he never learned to read music. By 1953, he had moved to Memphis, Tennessee, graduated from high school, and enrolled in night school to become an electrician. That year, at Sun Records, Presley recorded a personal record for his mother, a song that was heard by the company's president. As a result of the president's recognition, Presley's first record, That's all Right, Mama, was out in 1954.

He toured the South, and in 1955 five of his records were released simultaneously. His first national television appearance was that year on Jackie Gleason’s The Stage Show, but Presley became known for his appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, where the young singer gyrated as he sang rock n' roll music. During the live television performance, Presley was photographed only from the waist up because his motions were considered obscene.

Elvis the Pelvis began his film career in 1956 with LOVE ME TENDER and signed a long term film contract. The movie critics were not always kind, but teenagers flocked to Presley's films. Within a few short years, Presley had established a career that would span twenty-five years of ups and downs and make him one of the most popular entertainers in history. Long after his untimely death at age 42, Presley would be remembered as The King of Rock n' Roll

In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course. Since this country as founded, each generation of Americans has been summoned to give testimony to its national loyalty. The graves of young Americans into answered the call to service surround the globe.
Now the trumpet summons us again-not as a call to bear arms, though, arms we need, not as a call to battle, though embattled we are; but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, a, struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself.

What Happened to Tom Merritt?

She acted so calm and absent-minded.
And one day I heard the back door shut,
As I entered the front, and I saw him slink
Back of the smoke house into the lot,
And across the field.
And I meant to kill him on sight.
But that day, walking near Fourth Bridge,
Without a stick or a stone at hand,
All of a sudden I saw him standing,
Scared to death, holding his rabbits,
And all l could say was, Don't, Don't, Don't,
As he aimed and fired at my heart.

Begins the morning. Over this neighbourhood

Green oily teeth to chatter and munch the cud.

Still send from underground against your blades
The roots of things battalions green and curled
And tender, that will match your blades with blades
Till the revolted throats shall strangle on.

The tickle of their dead, till straws shall break
Crankshafts like camels, and the sun go down
On dinosaurs in swamps. A night attack
Follows and by the time the Sabbath dawns
All armored beasts are eaten by their lawns.
