Thanks very much for sending us a copy. With kind regards, Sincerely," Frederick M. Vinson, a former U. S. Representative from Kentucky (1925-1929, 1931-1937), U.S. Circuit Court Judge (1937-1943) and Secretary of the Treasury (1945-1946), was appointed Chief Justice by President Truman in 1946, serving until his death in 1953.

It ruled that the non-Communist statement required by the Taft-Hartley Act did not violate the Constitution (1950), that a speaker who displays "a clear and present danger" of incitement to riot can be arrested (1951) and that segregation is barred in interstate railway travel (1952).
