      CELEBRATING THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF KANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY

  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The Chair recognizes the gentleman from 
Kansas (Mr. Huelskamp) for 5 minutes.
  Mr. HUELSKAMP. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the first land-
grant college in America. Founded on February 16, 1863, Kansas State 
University has faithfully served the people of Kansas and this great 
Nation for 150 years.
  K-State was one of the first schools to offer a degree in home 
economics. K-State has helped feed a hungry world through innovative 
wheat, beef, and sorghum research; and Kansas State University is 
preparing for the next generation of animal research with the 
construction of the National Bio and Agri-Defense Facility Research 
Laboratory.
  Let me extend my heartfelt congratulations to Kansas State University 
for the last 150 years as we look forward to many more successes in the 
next 150 years.
