    SEQ. 10: RAPHAEL-LEYGUES: "For all of you, for the people of the Ivory Coast, and for the prosperity of this beautiful country in which we have the privilege, yes the great privilege, to live."



    SEQ. 12: HOUPHOUET-BOIGNY: "Allow me to take my turn in wishing you today, everything good and also to those you love. May this new year bring you all, to the sovereigns, to the chiefs of state and the people you represent with such competence and distinction, happiness and prosperity.



    "A few minutes ago, the French Ambassador evoked with feeling the outstanding transformation that the Ivory Coast has undergone in recent years. It is true that our cities and our countryside have undergone great changes, and we can be proud of them for they are witness to the economic health of the nation and the effort of a whole people towards their improvement and their dignity."
