Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That any person who has
made homestead entry under the provisions of the Act of Congress approved February 11, 1915 (Thirty-eighth Statutes at Large, page 807), entitled “An Act authorizing the Secretary of the Interior to survey the lands of the abandoned Fort Assinniboine Military Reservation and open the same to settlement,” may obtain an extension of time for one year from the anniversary of the date of entry last preceding the passage of this Act within which to pay all of the installment then due or any part of any preceding installment, where payment has not yet been made and where an extension of time therefor is not authorized by any Act of Congress by paying interest at the rate of 5 per centum per annum on the sums to be extended from the maturity of the unpaid installments to the expiration of the period of extension, the interest to be paid to the receiver of the land office for the district in which the lands are situated, within such time as may be prescribed for that purpose by the Secretary of the Interior: Provided, That any installment which becomes due within one year from the passage of this Act and for which an extension of time for payment is not otherwise authorized, may also be extended for a period of one year by paying interest thereon in advance at the said rate: Provided further, That any payment so extended may thereafter in the discretion of the Secretary of the Interior be extended for a further period of one year in like manner: And provided further, That if commutation proof is submitted, all the unpaid payments must be made at that time.
That the failure of any entryman to make any payment that may be due, unless the same be extended, or to make any payment extended either under the provisions hereof or other Act of Congress, at or before the time to which such payment has been extended, shall forfeit the entry and the same shall be canceled, and any and all payments theretofore made shall be forfeited.
Approved, January 6, 1921.
