VALIDATING CONVEYANCES BY THIRD CLASS CITIES
                 Act of Apr. 21, 1949, P.L. 703, No. 168              Cl. 53
                                  AN ACT

     Validating certain sales and deeds to real property heretofore
        made by cities of the third class in good faith under a
        mistake of law.

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

        Section 1.  Whenever any city of the third class, having
     purchased real property for non-payment of taxes, shall have
     heretofore sold any such property under the provisions of the
     act, approved the twenty-third day of June, one thousand nine
     hundred and thirty-one (Pamphlet Laws 932), known as "The Third
     Class City Law," in the mistaken belief that the provisions of
     said act were required to be complied with notwithstanding the
     fact that the provisions of said act relating to such sales were
     repealed by the act, approved the twenty-first day of May, one
     thousand nine hundred and thirty-seven (Pamphlet Laws 787), as
     amended. All such sales heretofore made in compliance with the
     provisions of the said The Third Class City Law are hereby
     ratified, confirmed and validated and the title to any such real
     property purchased by any person from such city and the deed
     executed and acknowledged to such purchaser is hereby declared
     to be as valid as if such sale shall have been made under, and
     in compliance with, the provisions of the said act, approved the
     twenty-first day of May, one thousand nine hundred and thirty-
     seven (Pamphlet Laws 787), as amended.
        Section 2.  This act shall become effective immediately upon
     final enactment.
