Seven of these "collapsible" dwelling units, wartime landmarks of Veterans Village, emergency housing project near the University's Coliseum, are slated for removal to make room for planned additions to the Coliseum. Professional wreckers will take over the salvaging of furnishings and materials from the dwellings. Occupants already have moved to quarters either outside the project or in other units which will not be disturbed by the addition to the University building, which houses the U-M ice-skating rink.

A carriage wheel gate adds an original, homey touch to the Donald Arvidson apartment and lot, illustrating how the veterans have improved the appearance of their apartments. The baby is seven-month-old Tommy Arvidson, one of the 20 babies added to the Village population.

Village occupants work hard to make their apartments attractive. A wall cut-work with an ivy plant and a Japanese water color decorate the partition which Donald Arvidson added.
