They Paved Paradise . . . A wrecking crew works amid the rubble of what used to be a house at 326 S. Fifth Ave. as demolition work get underway on the site of a federal building for Ann Arbor. The house, which used to hold a law office and several apartments, was the last building to be acquired by the U.S. government in preparation for the $4 million federal building in the block bounded by S. Fifth and S. Fourth avenues, E. Liberty and E. William streets. Until yesterday the house sported a sign which borrowed lyrics from as ong to proclaim, "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot." Demolition work was begun today on the Masonic Temple in the background. Related Story on Page 1.
