ARC Work Enjoyed by Mrs. Duncan When a retarded child is born, the 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 ZVz years ago, when their son David was born. "At first I felt sorry for my- self," 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 a special home when he was ready to leave the hospital. Mrs. Duncan has Rh negative blood, and because of problems reflating to this, David required additional hospitaliza- / tion after Mrs. Duncan was re-', leased. Staff Photo "Wt just did not know whar 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 that was my turning point," she said. "We had a son STONE'S 110 W. 6th — Carroll Mrs. Merle Duncan with, from left, Jeannine, David and Jodi 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 and doing crewel work, and she | 1 package dry yeast dissolved has had to put her plate and j in Vz cup warm canned milk (Political Advertisement) (Political Advertisement) Be Sure and Vote Tuesday, November 3 RE-ELECT WALTER KOSTER County Supervisor, Second District 1971 term Your Support Will Be Appreciated 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.

Number one sees alt the trucks and autos finally getting so snarled and entangled on the roads that nobody can move, so everyone leaves that final, monumental traffic jam, and goes back to walking or riding a horse. Number two foresees any driver who wishes to use his car applying in advance for a permit to move at a specified hour across a specific highway route. With annual vehicle production in excess of 10 million per year, we're getting closer. New regulations in three states makes number two less ludicrous than it might have sound- Times Herald, Carroll, la. "T Monday, Nov. 2, 1970 ' ed at first. California, Florida and Oregon have gon« to reservation systems for campsites in their state parks. Nearly two million recreational vehicles — referred to by the inner circle of admirers as RecV — compete for available parking sites. Restrictions on pulling up at roadside increase each year. A growing number of commercial or public-owned sites are attempting to fill the need ifor parking places. There are roughly 675,000 of these, abou the same number as there are motel units in the country. Sixty-five per cent of the RecV parking spots are in privately operated parks, a good many of fhem overnight halting places for families on trips. There's a squeeze, particularly during peak travel periods. One trailerite tells about phoning 14 different locations when hunting an overnight parking space in a California city. Finally he parked illegally on the street and slept a a friend's house. He was so mad he sold his outfit. The projection for 1980 is 7.5 million RecVs — hat's camping trailers Hike mobile tents), travel trailers (pull-behinds). truck campers (load aboards) and motor homes (self-contained). The fleet would be big enough to carry the entire populations of Canada and Alaska on one big joint vacation. Campsites are expanding at a good rate. Farmers have found Americans Still Cherish the Vagabond Life Made Possible by the Recreational Vehicle. But Parking Sites are a Growing Problem. them the best cash crop ever to come their way—better than tree farming. Public land sites are limited. One government official says, "If we tried to keep up with the demand, our parks would become solid campgrounds." So need for state park reservations has arrived. In Florida this winter, recreation vehicle drivers are advised to get advance reservaions — definiely heading for the popular coastal and keys state parks. Mnimum stay is four days. Rate is $2 per night with electricity 50 cents extra. Tack on a reservation fee of $2.50. Write for forms: State of Florida, Department of Natural Resources, Larsen Bldg., Tallahassee, Fla. 32304. California has three classes of parks with daily rates graduated: A — $3; B — $2; C — $1. Reservation fee is $1. Write Dept. of Parks, P.O. Box 2390, Sacramento, Calif. 95811. Oregon's system covers 10 parks only. No deposits are required. Simply phone the park two days in advance.
