Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Secretary of the Interior be, and hereby is, authorized to renew the contracts of employment heretofore entered into with the attorneys employed to represent the Chippewa Indians of Minnesota in the suits instituted in the Court of Claims under authority of the Act of May 14, 1926 (44 Stat. L. 555), as amended, on a year-to-year basis but not to exceed three years, as the Secretary of the Interior may deem advisable and for the best interests of said Indians. Said attorneys shall be entitled to such compensation for their services, in addition to that heretofore paid to them, as the Court of Claims in its discretion may allow from any amount recovered in any such suit, which compensation shall not exceed the sum of 5 per centum of any such recovery for the attorney for the Chippewa of White Earth Reservation and a like compensation for the firm of attorneys employed by the other bands of Chippewa Indians of Minnesota: Provided, however, That the Secretary of the Interior shall continue to pay out of tribal funds belonging to the Chippewa Indians all actual and necessary expenses incurred by said attorneys in such litigation as authorized by and subject to the limitations contained in the Act of April 11,1928 (45 Stats. 423): And provided further, That the compensation and expenses of the attorney or firm of attorneys employed under existing law to represent the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians of Minnesota shall be paid out of any money to the credit of said Indians in the Treasury of the United States not otherwise appropriated.
