KU4 Steel shoes I work for a major beverage company as a delivery driver and recently 1 was told that because of an accident in the warehouse, all of the employes will be required to wear steel-toed shoes as of May 1. We were lold this ruling was handed down by the Occupational Safety and Health Act committee and that the employes will have to pay for the shoes. I think this is unfair, especially since the delivery drivers aren't even allowed in the warehouse area. Can our company demand that we wear a special type of work shoe without any compensation to us? W.E., Lakewood. Although the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) states that il Is the responsibility of the employer to make sure his workers have proper safety gear, the law does not specify that the employer must pay for such equipment, according to a spokesman (or Ihe OSHA Review Commission. "Our legal staff believes that if the safety equipment is required as a condition of employment, the employe should pay the expense. But if the equipment is required after a person is employed, it's normally expected thai an employer will provide at least 50 per cent of the cost." If a company refuses to pay any of the expense, however, the employe's only recourse would be lo file a civil lawsuit against his employer; the OSHA Review Commission will not become involved in any dispute over who should pay tor required safety equipment. Union- negotiated labor contracls frequently will specify (hat the employe must pay for all safely equipment. Assodaled Press Drug-enforcement a g e n t s d e a l t what they said was a major blow to the heroin traffic in Southern California Monday, with sweeps in three counties that netted more than 30 persons. One police officer was wounded in a predawn raid in Collon, but he was released after treatment. Agents in Los Angeles said they had (etjcral complaints for 51 persons and expected further arrests in the case shortly. "The majority of those arrested Monday are major heroin traffickers who are the principal suppliers of heroin to the Southern California area," said Peter Bensingcr, director of the Drug Enforcement Administration. The raids look place in Los Angeles, San Bernardino.and Riverside counties. Arrests also were made in San Diego and Tucson, Ari/.., and authorities said more were expected in Porlcrvillc, Solanoand Barstow. The kingpin of the drug ring that was the target of Monday's attack was a Mexican national imprisoned since February 1975,'Ihe DEA said, identifying him as Raul !xon Aispuro, 30. of Tijuana. Whets Aispuro--who skipped bail in . San Diego on a drug charge four years earlier--was arrested in Mexico, all his records were seized and turned over to U.S. officials by Ihe Mexican federal police. Those arrested Monday w e r e re- sponsible for distributing at least 15 pounds of heroin- a month in the three comities where the raids were made. Ihe DEA said, and at one time supplied 20 to 25 por cent of (he heroin being sold in the Los Angeles area. "This was a classic conspiracy case." said Joe Flanders of (he Los Angeles DEA office. "We put this joint task force together nnd in the last seven months we identified those who lind b o u g h t h e r o i n f r o m Aispuro nationwide." Buys from the ring reportedly were made in -16 stales. Five of those named in the federal complaints were Mexican citizens who will be prosecuted there with information developed by the DKA, a spokes- man said. The cithers arrested woje .iiraigncd Monday before U.S. magis- [rates. . ·-: All wcie charged with consiiirnJy to (import ;i controlled s'ubslnhccY-c.n- spirai'.v to possess a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance with intenl lo riislribulc, en'di count carrying a maximum 15-year sentence. .;Some complaints also chnrgrtl i m p o r t a t i o n and distribution of aii]- phelamincs and barbiturates.,. ·'· In addition, John Coelho was od for investigation of attempted nttit- der of a police officer.

' ~^', DOOLEY'S APPLIANCES FOR THE BUDGET-MINDED Vegas special \ Three friends and I bought Greyhound bus tickets lo Las Vegas on a special deal called the Hacienda Express to Las Vegas. The round trip fare of $22.80 was supposed to include 10 hours at the Hacienda Hotel and Casino plus a $14 bonus. The bus we took let us off al Ihe Stardust Hotel and the driver said he didn'l know about any Hacienda trip. And we never did receive our $M bonus. We would like some help in this mailer. B.H., San Pedro. Take your ticket stubs to Ted Malin, manager of Ihe Long Beach Greyhound Bus Terminal, and he will refund your money or arrange for you am! your friends to lake another trip. E.C. Montrose, the Greyhound Bus Lines district manager in Los Angeles, explained lhal if there aren't enough persons holding the special tickets to fill a charter bus, they are instructed to take one of Ihe buses in regular service, which normally slop at the Stardust. You then should have been able to call the Hacienda Hotel, which would have sent a car to drive yon the rest of the way. Montrose apologized for Ihe mix-up and said these provisions should have been carefully explained to you when you bought your tickets. No W-2 In January 1975, I worked for the Fuller Brush Co. in Los Angeles arid the Purolator Security Co. in Monterey Park, and I haven't received W-2 forms for my income lax from cither firm. I've written them several letters, but they've never answered me. Can Action Line help? A.V., Travis Air Force Rase. We checked with the Purolalor Security Co., now in Commerce, and learned that a duplicate W-2 form is being prepared for you and should be senl oul within a week. The original was mailed to your old address, but evidently wasn't forwarded. According lo a spokesman for the Fuller Brush Co., you apparently were an independent salesman for the firm and nol eligible for a W-2 form since no tax was withheld from your pay. Other readers with similar W-2 form problems should contact Iheir local Internal Revenue Service office. If a taxpayer has been unable (o obtain the form on his own, the IRS will contact the employer. If a company still refuses to send the form or if a firm has gone out of business, (M IRS will supply a taxpayer with a special form on which he estimates his income and the tax '.withheld and Ihe return is filed on thai basis. If the W-2 form arrives later, Ihe taxpayer is supposed lo file an amended return. The lack of a W-2 form does not excuse a laxpayer'from meeting the April 15 deadline. Employers are required by law to supply W-2 forms by the end -of January and can be fined for not doing so. Dance and twirl [ would like to know two things.
