How pleasant, indeed, would it be if there were a unity of friendship among all men and women, all nations. There could be. Long ago m one life upon earth, a single man pointed the way.

The owner/renter farms 440 acres and this year planted 180 acres of corn (his favorite crop), 190 acres of beans and the remainder is in diverted acres. You'll find Mr. Sheppard, when not working his crops, out working in the farmyard or working with the horses, which are in part, a hobby, and it is suspected he derives much enjoy- ment from this. Recent changes in the farm's appearance includes a double garage and breezeway that Duane built. He was born and raised around the Whittemore area where his father farmed. Duane's parents were born in the county. He was born May 27, 1924 to Mr. and Mrs. Earl Sheppard, who now live in Algona. His only sister is Geraldine, Mrs. Louis Schumacher, also of Algona. He has no brothers. "We met at a dance in Whittemore," the couple stated. Duane later married Phyllis Cink on June 2, 1953. Phyllis was born Dec. 16, 1932 to Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Cink (now deceased) of Whittemore. The Sheppards have four daughters, Brenda, 9; Donna, 14; Debbie, 15, all at home, and Diane, 17, now working in Chicago. Duane and Phyllis are members of St. Cecelia's Catholic Church in Algona, and she is a member of st, Cecelia's Guild. Flowers adorn the front yard and Phyllis enjoys raising them.
