WASHINGTON, Dec. 19 Because
1 the lost of living has Increased 100
per cent since 1885 and average sal
aries In the customs service has been
Increased less than 12 per cent In
that time. Secretary McAdoo asks
congress to Increase those salaries.
In .1 letter to Speaker Champ Clark
Just msde public, Mr. McAdoo asks a
minimum salar) of $5 a day for in
spectors of customs with correspond
ing increases for examiners of mer
chandise, custom guards, openers and
packers, weighers, deputy coll ( tors,
laborers and other emplavers.
Tlie estimate for the next fiscal
eir for defra)lng the cost of collect
ing customs revenues is inciea-ed
fiom $10,000,000 to $11,383, MJ.
Mr McAdoo points out that the in
ci eased cost of living bears most
hcnvll) upon those receiving .in an
nual snlaiy of less than $1100 and
mnkes tho point that since 'he war
emergency has passed and they tan
