The trial judge properly refused to give the jury any instruction on the subject of entrapment. There was no evidence in the record to support such a defense as the defendant himself testified that he did not know what was in the package which he admittedly delivered to the narcotics agent. United States v. Pagano, 2 Cir., 1953, 207 F.2d 884, 885. The other allegations of error are entirely without merit.


The judgment is affirmed.
