   4. Find three headlines that have the names of countries 
       in them.

      Remember!
   In English, it is usually easy to find the name of a country
   because it  begins with a capital (big) letter. But in 
   headlinesGlossary all important words begin with capital letters so
   it is not so easy to find these names.

   5. Copy these headlines into the three boxes on
         Worksheet 1  that ask for -
       "The Headline with the Name of a Country."
