Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Secretary of the Treasury be, and he is hereby, authorized and directed to pay, out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, to Elliott H. Tasso and Emma Tasso, of Colony, Oklahoma, the sum of $2,000 in full settlement of all claims which they may have against the Government of the United States, due to the death of their child, an infant ten days old, by reason of an accident caused by negligence of the nurse at the Cheyenne and Arapaho Hospital, in October 1932, when said nurse placed the infant child on a table in the bathroom for the purpose of bathing it, and left the room, leaving the child unattended, and during her absence it fell from the table to a hot radiator and thence to the floor, being badly burned and injured in the fall from which it died three weeks later: Provided, That in the discretion of the Secretary of the Interior the amount herein appropriated may be held as individual Indian money by the Superintendent of the Cheyenne and the Arapaho Agency, Oklahoma, and be disbursed in accordance with regulations governing such funds: Provided further, 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 agents, attorney or attorneys, on account of services rendered in connection with said claim. It shall be unlawful for any agent or agents, attorney or attorneys, to exact, collect, withhold, or receive any sum of the amount appropriated in this Act in excess of 10 per centum thereof on account of services rendered in connection with said claim, 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.
