THE GALVESTON DAILY NEWS, SUNDAY, MARCH 16, 1924. TWENTY-ONE s Men HANDLING FLOW OF FOREIGN COMMERCE BIG JOB IN ITSELF I'V Kc D. SKINNER. In these stirring days of constitutional drouth and twelve-mile limits customs officers, as a class, have come r^ore and more into the limelight. Whfire but a few years back the general public heard of them only occasionally through the press, as some smuggling plot of international scope was nipped in the bud at New York, San Francisco Francisco or Bomb other port, it has come to pass that almost any newspaper newspaper will be found to contain some account, from somewhere, telling telling of their activities against organized booze and narcotic running. Perhaps it will bo the seizure of a big schooner from the West Indies, laden with thousands of cases of choice wines and liquors. Again it may be a blood-stirring account of a gun battle on some lonely anu deserted stretch nf water front, in which they have foiled a plot to land whisky or narcotics. Or it may bo a smaller item, less sensational. But one can almost bet there'll be something. And that's where the "rub" conies in--for the customs inspector, at least. They resent to a certain extent being always pictured to the public in their belligerent roles of gun fighters, booze sleuths and narcotic chasers,-when their greatest work is of a far less spectacular but much more important nature. Through their hands must pass all cargoes imported into the United States, that the government may collect its-just duty, and in this case it is wise to remember that, in 'valuation at least, America imports about as much astit ships out, if not more. They also have to handle a vast amount oi other detail connected with foreign trade and shipping, and their jobs require no little amount of business instinct, sound training, experience and diplomacy. diplomacy. prevention of .SmuKKllnK- I Of c o u r s e . - t h e v are charged w i t h ] t h e p r e v e n t i o n r of s m u g g l i n g , a n d ] makes t h e m peace o f f i c e r s i n | i i v - v ,. t _ -- -. -. or perhaps ivvenue o f f i c e r s | r o n t e n t s of tlie daniajrcd cases.
