.ANACT For the relief of the First National Bank of Birmingham, Alabama.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assenwled^ That the Secretary of the Treasury is authorized and directed to pay, out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, to the First National Bank of Birmingham, Alabama, the sum of $6,021.15.

The Veterans' Administration, discovering in 1951 that such institute (without the knowledge of the bank) had been guilty of fraud under the contract, refused to pay such claims to the bank and instead offset the amount of such claims against the penalties which were imposed upon such institute by reason of such fraud: Provided, That no part of the amount appropriated in this Act in excess of 10 per centum thereof shall be paid or delivered to or received by any agent or attorney on account of services rendered in connection with this claim, and the same shall be unlawful, any contract to the contrary notwithstanding. Any person violating the provisions of this Act shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction thereof shall be fined in any sum not exceeding $1,000. Approved September 2, 1957.
