Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.

Before GODBOLD, DYER and MORGAN, Circuit Judges.


Without prepayment of costs pursuant to 28 U.S.C.A. § 1916, Souyoutzis filed a suit in rem for wages against the M/V Georgios K. Relying on 28 U.S.C.A. § 1921, the Marshal refused to execute the warrant of attachment without a deposit for costs to be incurred. The district court denied relief. We affirm for the reasons explicated in Araya v. McLelland, 5 Cir. 1976, 525 F.2d 1194.
