    Background: Our Homeland preparing to ring in the New Year. The last hours of the old wearing away. But these few last hours showed best the prosperity attained by the Bulgarian people.

    Co-operative farm members will remember the year that has so generously rewarded their work on the soil and brought prosperity to every home.

    Animation in the streets and shopping center. Everyone is out to buy a present for someone at home - shopwindows are a brilliant, irresistible attraction.

    Look, Grandpa Frost is here, how children flock around him. Hundreds and hundreds of them.

    A fairy tale nook has been built for children at the Isker RR Station Culture Club.

    Dressed rehearsal of the play "New Year's Dreams"
    The dress rehearsal has drawn quite and audience. Little Ivan and his father, turner Karashalakov.

    Isker Station workers are ringing the New Year with the national slogan "Accomplish the Five Year Plan in shorter periods"
    Turner Karashalakov has been ??? the best-in-the-trade title
    Unrelenting work at Kremikovtsi mine going on up to New Year's Eve.

    Kremikovtsi workers have given the pledge to shorten the Five Year Plan by a year and nine months. Operations on the mine reveal further and further sources of subsoil wealth.

    Survey is soon followed by blasting operations
    Another layer reached. More ore will soon flow to the smelter.

    Intensive work for foreshortening the time of the Five Year Plan is also going on at the Maritsa-East open-cast mining field.

    More and more coal is needed for the growing industrial power of our Homeland. Long trainloads leave the mining center every day.

    The pledge taken before the party by the workers to deliver the Maritsa-East Thermo-electric station ahead of schedule will be honoured. Its great frame grows by the hour, and in 1959 these workers are confident to celebrate their newest victory - the station will start generating electric power.
