                  Act of Apr. 6, 1949, P.L. 398, No. 45               Cl. 24
                                  AN ACT

     To validate and quiet the title to lands and buildings
        heretofore sold by boards of school directors at public
        auction without full compliance with provisions of law
        authorizing such sales.

        The General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
     hereby enacts as follows:

        Section 1.  Whenever any board of school directors shall have
     heretofore sold any unused and unnecessary lands and buildings
     by public auction, the sale of which by public auction is
     authorized under the provisions of the school laws of the
     Commonwealth, and such board of school directors has received
     the purchase price, then such sales shall be valid and binding
     on the school district, and all deeds or conveyances given by
     the school district for any such lands and buildings are hereby
     ratified, confirmed and validated, and such purchasers and their
     respective heirs, successors and assigns shall hold and may
     convey such titles and estates indefeasibly as to any rights of
     the school districts therein, notwithstanding the fact that the
     notice of the public auction was not published in the legal
     newspaper in the county or by posting of handbills nor in one or
     more newspapers of general circulation published within the
     county or the school district, and notwithstanding the fact that
     the terms and conditions of said sales were not fixed by the
     board of school directors in the motion or resolution
     authorizing said sales: Provided, That the terms and conditions
     of said sales were fixed by the board of school directors prior
     to the holding of such sales and that all the other requirements
     of law concerning the authorization and holding of such sale
     have been complied with.
        Section 2.  The provisions of this act shall become effective
     immediately upon final enactment.
