ARC Work Enjoyed by Mrs. Duncan When i retarded child is born, Hie parents are forced to make a very hard decision, whether they are affluent, on welfare, or just average people. The Merle Duncans of Carroll were forced to make this very decision just 3Vfe years ago, when tfieir son David was born. "At first I felt sorry for my*elf," Mrs. Duncan said, "I guess that's natural." The doctors at the Omaha hospital where David was born suggested that the Duncans place the child in aspecial home when he was ready to leave the hospital. Mrs. Duncan has Rh negative blood, and because of problems relating to this, David required additional hospilaliza- tion after Mrs. Duncan was leased. re-' "Wt jutt did net know what to do," Mrs. Duncan recalled. "But 1 guess fate plays funny tricks." While driving back to Carroll after their first visit with David in the hospital nursery, they passed a funeral hearse from Carroll County. "I think thait was my turning point," she said. "We had a son STONE'S 110 W. 6th — Carroll Mrs. Merle Duncan with, from left, Jeannine, in Vietnam at that time, and that hearse made me realize that a child like David was not such a tragedy. I decided then to bring him home."' "We didn't quite know what to expect, raising David at home," his mother continued. But they soon found out. David is the most active 3-year-old; keeping up with him could become a full time occupation, especially since his favorite game is "chase-me." The Duncans did not know about the fine special education classes in Carroll County, but they quickly learned. They joined the Carroll County Association for Retarded Children, and this year Mrs. Duncan is working on their fund drive campaign which began Nov. 1 and runs through Nov. 7. She was in charge of getting chairmen for 15 township residential drives, and described this as "a very rewarding experience." "Everyone made me feel so good," she explained, "most people, even those who did not have retarded children, agreed to help immediately." Although David has caused Mrs. Duncan to temporarily postpone some of her activities, such as refinishing furniture (Political Advertisement) (Political Advertisement) L Be Sure and Vote Tuesday, November 3 RE-ELECT WALTER KOSTER County Supervisor, Second District 1971 term Your Support Will Be Appreciated and doing crewel work, and she has had to put her plate and vase collections in high places, she still finds time for her favorite hobbies, knitting and sewing. Mrs. Duncan said she likes to do anything creative, and at one time had thought about becoming a dress designer. She shows her ingenuity and talent with a needle by taking apart old wool skirts, and making them into pantskirts and vests for her daughters; Jeannine and Jodi, both K u e m p e r students. She makes bell-bottoms for David, and her three grandsons, the children of son Donald and his wife Margaret, who live in Memphis. The other Duncan children are Douglas, who works and goes to school in California, and Janet who works in Memphis and plans to be married in January. David will never lack stuffed animal toys. His mother whips them up from old pile coat linings. In addition to her sewing and knitting, Mrs. Duncan raises house plants, many from seed, has a thriving vegetable garden every summer and grows roses. "I guess I'm a homebody," she explained. "A child like David can really bring the family close together." And David certainly seems to be thriving on the love he receives from his family, and is eager to share this love. He blows a kiss to everyone who leaves his house. When asked to describe her cooking, Mrs. Duncan laughed, "I'd rather be sewing or knitting!" The family likes simple dinners, casseroles and one- dish meals being their favorites. Mrs. Duncan has given her recipe for the girls' favorite treat — Long Johns; and a special German-type potato salad that pleases the family, especially when it's made with fresh parsley from their garden.
