    Background: THE QUIET BEAUTY OF AUTUMN!
    IN THE SUNNY DAYS OF AUTUMN OUR THOUGHTS HAVE BEEN INSPIRED BY A GREAT EVENT IN THE LIFE OF THE BULGARIAN PEOPLE - THE 8TH CONGRESS OF THE BULGARIAN COMMUNIST PARTY.

    THE BULGARIAN CAPITAL IN FESTIVE DECORATION WELCOMES THE DELEGATES OF THE PARTY FROM EVERY CORNER OF THE LAND AND MANY DELEGATIONS AND GUESTS COME FROM OTHER COUNTRIES FOR THE CONGRESS
    MEMBERS OF THE POLITBUREAU OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE BULGARIAN COMMUNIST PARTY CORDIALLY WELCOMED AT THE SOFIA AIRPORT THE DELEGATION OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE SOVIET UNION, LED BY COMRADE MIHAIL SOUSLOV MEMBER OF THE PRESIDIUM AND SECRETARY OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE CPSU.

    THE 8TH CONGRESS WAS ATTENDED BY DELEGATE GUESTS OF 63 FRATERNAL COMMUNIST PARTIES FROM ALL FIVE CONTINENTS.

    A PARTICULARLY WARM WELCOME AWAITED THE DELEGATION OF HEROIC REVOLUTIONARY CUBA, HEADED BY COMRADE BLAZ ROCCA - MEMBER OF THE NATIONAL LEADERSHIP OF THE UNION OF REVOLUTIONARY ORGANIZATIONS.

    THE CONGRESS HALL HAS BROUGHT TOGETHER MANY VETERANS OF THE PARTY. HERE TOO ARE THE DELEGATES OF OUR YOUNGER GENERATION, BROUGHT UP ON THE YEARS OF THE PEOPLE'S GOVERNMENT.

    TODOR ZHIVKOV - FIRST SECRETARY OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE BULGARIAN COMMUNIST PARTY PRESENTED THE MAIN REPORT.

    (SYNCHRONIZATION).

    "COMRADES,
    THE PERIOD BETWEEN THE 7TH AND 8TH CONGRESSES OF THE BULGARIAN COMMUNIST PARTY HAS MARKED A SHARP TURN IN THE LIFE OF THE PARTY AND THE COUNTRY AS A WHOLE. IT COINCIDES WITH THE NEW STAGE IN OUR GENERAL SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT, BEGUN AFTER THE 20th CONGRESS OF THE CPSU AND THE APRIL PLENUM OF OUR PART IN 1956.

    DURING THIS PERIOD THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE PARTY HAS DONE COLOSSAL WORK TO CLEAR TO THE VERY LAST THE HARMFUL CONSEQUENCES OF THE PERSONALITY CULT, AND FOR SETTLING OUTSTANDING AND PRESSING PROBLEMS OF OUR SOCIAL, POLITICAL, NATIONAL, ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT.

    THE ESSENTIAL TASK AND STRUGGLE AFTER THE APRIL PLENUM OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE AND THE SEVENTH CONGRESS OF THE PARTY WERE DIRECTED TOWARDS THE FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF THE MATERIAL AND TECHNICAL BASIS OF SOCIALISM, THE RESTORATION OF THE LENINIST PRINCIPLES IN EVERY FIELD OF RECONSTRUCTION OF OUR SOCIALIST SOCIETY.

    THE DELEGATES HEARD WITH PARTICULAR ATTENTION THE ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT THE EXPLUSION FROM THE PARTY OF VULKO CHERVENKOV, THE DIVESTMENT FROM THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE AND FROM RESPONSIBLE STATE POSITIONS OF YOUGOV, TSANKOV, HRISTOZOV, KUMBILIEV, KOLCHEV AND BOEV BECAUSE OF THEIR BREACH OF SOCIALIST LEGALITY, WHICH COST THE LIFE OF THE SPLENDID PARTY LEADER TRAICHO KOSTOV AND OTHER TRUE SONS OF THE PARTY.

    COMRADE ZHIVKOV ENDED HIS REPORT WITH THE WORDS
    (SYNCHRONIZATION)
    TO THE ROSTRUM COMES THE LEADER OF THE DELEGATION OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE SOVIET UNION, COMRADE MIHAIL SOUSLOV.

    (SYNCHRONIZATION.)
    "DEAR COMRADES, FRIENDS,
    ALLOW ME, ON BEHALF OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE SOVIET UNION, ON BEHALF OF OUR WHOLE PARTY AND THE SOVIET PEOPLES TO CONVEY TO THE 8TH CONGRESS OF THE BULGARIAN COMMUNIST PARTY, TO ALL BULGARIAN COMMUNISTS AND TO THE FRATERNAL BULGARIAN PEOPLE OUR HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS. FROM ALL MY HEART I WISH THE CONGRESS THE BEST OF SUCCESS."
