the United States in any land and improvements thereon and personal

property used in connection therewith heretofore or hereafter used

United States in trust for an individual Indian or Indian tribe:

Provided further, That no more than fifty acres of land shall be

transferred under the terms of this section in connection with any

provisions of the transfer agreement and that the failure has

continued for at least one year, he may declare a forfeiture of the

conveyance and the title conveyed shall thereupon revert to the

United States. Such determination by the Secretary of the Interior
