DANCE OF THE PICKETTES: Fair feminine employees of Ann Arbor's Michigan Bell Telephone Co. district office cut a buck-and-wing in the course of their march back and forth in front of the new telephone company annex being erected on E. Huron St. Both singing and dancing were resorted to by girl pickets as a means of relieving the monotony of today's picketing operations. The dancers are Virginia Suojanen and Dorothy Malt. (Story on local telephone strike is on page 14.)

EARLY BUILDING GIVES WAY TO NEW: What was once the Ladies' Library Association building constructed in 1885, is being wrecked to clear the way for erection of a new Michigan Bell Telephone Co. office building at 324 E. Huron St. The building was used as a Boy Scout council headquarters for about 20 years after it was given by the association to the board of education.

That windowless Michigan Bell Telephone building didn't always occupy its E. Huron St. plot as this picture suggests. Back in the 40s, and before and after, the council office of the Boy Scouts stood there as did (at left) the Cowie residence which later was acquired and razed by The News when parking space became a necessity. Sewell Platt's Ford garage was just to the right of the Scout headquarters building which later on houses a dance academy.
