     effect as if properly executed and acknowledged in the manner
     prescribed by law for the execution and acknowledgment of deeds
     and mortgages by corporations or by joint stock or partnership
     associations or limited partnership or registered partnership:
     Provided, That no case now in litigation shall be affected by
