McCain said the Jewell property was bought with the understanding thai her filling station would not he linked with the new highway. The location of the station was such, he said, that continued access to the main flow of traffic would be a "serious traffic liaz- ird."

It voted o suspend further consideration of the Delia-Jewell subject until the outcome of court proceedings. Delia said he asked for the hearing because Mrs. Jewell's state- .ments might be a proper subject for its investigation. He later ex- iplained to newsmen that, since he (was not a principal in the case [between Mrs. Jewell and the roads [commission, he could not volunteer [his full statement in court. I He said he first became interested in the Anne Arnndel property, a tract of about 20 acres on [the west outskirts of Annapolis, in [May or June, 1950. At that time, he was acting as a lawyer repre- [senting Parr, who was an agent [for Henry A. Knott, Inc., Balti[more building firm. Delia told the subcommittee Knott had bought the land to build a Negro housing development on it but later was stymied in attempts to obtain building permits, sewage disposal facilities and other, utilities. He was told by county and roads commission officials that plans were being drafted for a road in (bat area,•• Delia, said. He said this was wha: followed: Knott offered to sell the property to Parr, who in turn asked Delia if he were interested in buying is as a partnership. Delia took a half-interest in it about June 1, 3952. The new owners made a "further attempt" to carry out the origina plans to build Negro housing on the land. When they failed, thej applied to have the property rezoned from residential to commercial. ' . "What I did was buy a piece of land," said Delia. "I didn't care whether a road was going through there or not. All I. was interested in was housing because it was needed down there." Noting Delia's criticism of The Baltimore Sun for printing an ac count of Mrs. Jewell's court action, Del. A. Gordon Boone <D- Balto County) said he thought his colleague was "a little unnecessarily alarmed." , "All they (lid was quote from lie cross-bill," said Boone. Koads Commission Chairman Russell H. McCain, the only other witness at the hearing, told the subcommittee the State hired en- [ineers in November, 1950, to sur- lie access. ,.,. i The poles were knocked down 'with a bulldozer or something like that, McCain testified. The commission rebuilt the barricade and, when it was knocked down again, the courts were asked to order Mrs. Jewell to refrain from repeating this act, McCain said.
