ney, a while woman.
Justice Frankfurter delivered
the 6-3 decision. Chief Justice Vin

ger. The case Involved an Okla
homan who was arrested on a
trip from Joplin, Mo., into dry
Oklahoma. Officers found 12 cases
of whisky in the car, which they
stopped because it appeared to be
weighted down. They lacked a
warrant, but the tribunal ruled
this was not necessary in view of
the man's background. A dissent
ing opinion expressed fear that
"unfit and ruthless" officers mny
take advantage of the ruling to
push searches and seizures.
