Jo By WILLIAM HERSHEY It took a jury of 11 women and one man less than two hours to convict Michael Hamad, 25,, of selling marijuana and opium to Gene L. Chi-1 coine, former sheriff's undercover agent. A Beacon Journal poll revealed, however, that two of the jurors at first held out against signing the verdicts. One hold-out said she signed "regretfully" after re-examining the evidence with the other jurors.

But also on the law's side, there were many questions unanswered, many questions evaded b y Chicoine," said one juror. "He (Chicoine) is not totally innocent. He should" answer a few questions. Why didn't he bring his records to court?" she asked. The only records Chicoine produced were two typewrit-' ten sheets each summarizing ore of the charges against Hamad. HAMAD contended that he was entrapped by Chicoine and sold him the drugs out of fear for his own life and for the life of his cousin, John LaHood, a former sheriff's deputy.

IS MICHAEL HAMAD Hamad claimed that L a-Hood and Mark Reagle, a former Sheriff's informant, aided Chicoine in the entrapment. .. Common Pleas Judge Evan. J. Reed instructed the jurors that under Ohio law entrapment is permitted as- a de-1 fense if police plant the original intent to commit a crime in the defendant's mind. "If in . committing the crime, the defendant even In part carries out his own pur-p o s e, then it's not entrapment," Judge Reed said. ' - EVEN THE jurors who questioned Chicoine's method of operation agreed that Hamad had a part in planning the drug sales. "To be entrapped you have to be lily white to start with. I .think Mike trapped himself," r said one juror. , ; .' . She added however: 1 -Lb. Plus U.S. Choice T-BONES & ALASKA KING CRAB LEGS FOR 2 2 T-BOIMES. . . FOR 2 CRAB LEGS. . .

She said Chicoine was the "pot" and Hamad the "kettle" in her allegory. "The . pot wasn't on trial," this juror added. HAMAD and another defense witness told the jury that Chicoine bought more than $2,000 worth of marijuana from them , that has not been accounted for. ' - Five of. the 10 jurors who agreed 'to discuss the case were emphatic . in saying that . Chicoine "did a good job" in his undercover role. i "He did the best he could with what he , was f ightirig. : There's always a tendency to go against the police. I like to believe the police," said one juror. "With any undercover man there's always some entrap-', ment. But there was none here in the eyes of the law. Chicoine did what was expect-, ed of him as a policeman," said another. HAMAD, facing '20-40 year . sentence on each charge, is in Summit County Jail. Judge Reed deferred sentencing, pending a request from Hamad's attorneys for a new trial and other motions. . A. hearing, is. set at 1:30 p. m. , Monday in Ninth Dis-tirct Court of Appeals on a motion that would free Hamad on bond from the Summit County jail, pending appeals.

Her memory is fading now. Could I get a copy ef her old school book for her 76th birthday Sunday? Mrs. T. H., Akron. Like-new copies-sell for $100' or so. But ACTION LINE found for your mom used copies of" McGuffey's fifth and sixth ' grade "Eclectic Reader." Both are about 70 years old. The pages are rounded. The covers are partially gone, But the poems, stories and sermons on virtue and true love and the evils of whisky are all there. Tattered McGuffeys sometimes - turn up in old book shops 'for a dollar or two. ' What happened to the Tokyo theater opened after World War II as a memorial to the late war correspondent Ernie Pyle? P. M., Akron. The former "Toho" 2,800-seat theater taken over by the' Eighth Army in 1946 was returned to its Japanese owners in 1953.

' " My daughter in Tucson is expecting my first grandchild. , I'm ' buying a hew pickup track: for my camperback. I'D be making several trips West this Summer. Could I get a canis- ter air conditioner for my truck? J. S., Uniontown. I ' ' ' ' They're scarce, pop. The little units which force humid aif into the passenger compartment don't work well unless ' the humidity is very low. Because of irrigation ' work, the I Southwest is no longer so dry. But we found a'Tucson truck parts dealer who will , lend you his. If you like it, you can have it for $35. Better still, pay $300-plus for factory-installed "air" in your pickup. And get a ceiling exhaust fan for the ; camperback. ;; i Was WGAR disk jockey Don Imus faking it when he tele- phoned the Ohio attorney general "on the air"? J. M., Kent. -Not at all. That was William J. Brown, Ohio's new young attorney general-live and unrehearsed. In , fact, anyone can call Brown at 1-216-469-3376. Imus invited Brown to "join the swing-in', swirlin' world of show biz." Brown responded, "Maybe later we'll give it some thought." Imus usually tapes his celebrity inter- -.views as he broadcasts. The best get re-played Saturday mornings. His classic is a call to a drive-in restaurant for 4,000 hamburgers to go for the National Guard. Last November I sent $17 to a mail order firm for two sets of small china dishes with bird paintings on them. Since , ,' then I've received flocks of post cards assuring me my order " would arrive soon. But no birds! B. L., Akron. 1 The company's computer went aflutter. Your check was' received with a Doylestown address on it and your order J; came in with an Akron address. We suggested to the comput- , er that it wing the birds our way instead. They arrived ;: undamaged within a week of our inquiry. - Uteader Me-ACTHI The Water Department should respond more quickly to ' z reports of water line leaks. I understand the city must pay": i thousands to repair damage to Kling st. because a leaky line' T. unrepaired several days undermined the street.
