Colonial Dr. tt Orange Blossom Vol. 82 No. 217 64 Pages Central Florida .Disney Projec End Comes At Height Of Career foui $orfc limra Dispatch To The Sentmtt LOS ANGELES Walt Disney, who built his whimsical cartoon world of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and "Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs," into a $100-mi!lion-a-year entertainment empire, died Thursday morning. He was 65. His death was attributed to acute circulatory collapse. He had been operated on in St. John's Hospital a month ago for a lung tumor that was discovered after he entered the hospital for treatrnent of an old neck injury sustained in a polo match. On Nov. 30 he re-entered the hospital for a "post-operative checkup." -t JUST BEFORE his last illness, Disney was supervising such important projects as construction of a new Disneyland in Florida; a ski resort in Sequoia National Forest; renovation of the 1 0 - y e a r - o 1 d Disneyland at Anaheim, Calif. In addition, his studio was turning out six movies plus television shows. He was a leader in the development of the vast university of the arts, called Cal Arts, now being built near here. Disneyland observed its 10th birthday last year. By that time, it had grown from 200 to 300 acres, had been visited by some 50 million persons and represented an investment of $50.1 million. ITS INTERNATIONAL fame was guaranteed by former Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev, who' protested, on a visit to Hollywood, that he had been unable to see the area. Security arrangements could not be made in time. (Continued on Fg. 2-A, Col. 1) Disney Inside Tributes to Disney come from many areas ... . Pg. 5-A . " Disney stock climbs despite death . . . .

In everything he did, Walt had an intuitive way of reaching out and touching the 1 heart and mind of young and old alike. His entertainment was an inter national language. For more than 40 years, people have looked to Walt Disney for the finest quality in family enter- 1 tainment. "There is no way to replace Walt Disney. He was an ex- traordinary man. Perhaps there will never be another like him. I know that we, who worked at 1 his side for all these years, will I always cherish the years and the minutes we spent in helping Walt' Disney entertain the people of the world. The world will always be a better place because Walt Disney was its master showman. "AS PRESIDENT and chair- man of the board of Walt Disney 1 Productions, I want to assure the public, our stockholders, I and each of our more than 4,000 employes that we will continue operating Walt Disney's com- I pany in the way that he has established and guided it. "Walt Disney spent his entire life and almost every waking 1 hour in the creative planning of motion pictures, Disneyland, I television shows and all the 1 other diversified activities that have carried his name through I the years. "Around him, Walt Disney gathered the kind of creative people who understood his way 1 of communicating with the pub- UNFORGETTABLE CREATION Roses Parade as grand marshal rlanbo Tis a Privilege to Florida, Friday, December 16, ,1966 o lie through entertainment. Walt's ways were always unique and he built a unique organization, a team of creative people that he was justifiably proud of. "I think Walt would have 1 wanted me to repeat his words to describe the organization he built over the years. Last Octob- er, when he accepted the Show- man of the World award in New York, Walt said, . 4 "THE DISNEY organization 1 now has more than 4,000 em- ployes. Many have been with us for over 30 years. They take great pride in the organization which they helped to build. Only through the talents, the. labor and the dedication of this staff could any Disney project get off the ground. We all think alike in the ultimate pattern.' "Much of Walt Disney's ener- 1 gy had been directed to prepar- ing for this day. It was Walt's wish that, when the time came, he would have built an or- ganization with the creative I talent to carry on as he had established and directed it through the years. Today, this organization has been built and we will carry out this wish. "Walt Disney's preparation for the future is a solid, creative foundation. All of the plans for the future that Walt had begun new motion pictures, the expansion of Disneyland, televi- sion production and our Florida and Mineral King projects will continue to move ahead. That is the way Walt wanted it to be." I DISNEY WITH SOME OF MANY TROPHIES IN HIS HOME . . . Oscars plentiful among endless collection of honors Live in Central Florida Go Forward. That Was Way Walt Wanted If By DON RIDER Sentinel Staff A sorrowing Central Florida was assured Thursday that plans for Disneyland East will be carried forward. - The untimely death of Walt Disney had touched off speculation the future of the major tourist attraction he proposed for this area was in jeopardy. HOWEVER Jim Stewart, spokesman for the Disney enterprises, told The Sentinel:- "Walt Disney Productions authorized the Florida Development Commission to make the following statement on our behalf. "Previous to Mr. Disney's first entering the hospital for his oper-tion, he clearly and in great detail delineated to the organization his plans and dreams for the individual elements of his Florida project. "IT IS the determination of Roy Disney, the Disney family and the entire Disney organization that these plans be carried forward." Roy Disney, older brother, chairman of the board and president of Walt Disney Productions, went further. He said: "All of the plans for the future that Walt had begun new motion pictures, the expansion of Disneyland, television production and our Florida and Mineral King projects will continue to move ahead. That is the way Walt wanted it to be." DISNEY visualized, not a repeat of Anaheim's Disneyland in Florida, but rather "a new, different kind of world." - . His last interview on the subject disclosed some of what this meant. He produced a new name, EPCOT, to be given to a city of some 30,000 inhabitants. . EPCOT stands for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, "a city that caters to the people as a service function. It will be a planned, controlled community, a showcase for American industry and research, schools, cultural and educational opportunities." THE CITY of the future was only one idea that is to grow on the 27,000-acre tract in southwest Orange and northwest Osceola Counties. In the original announcement made at the Cherry Plaza Hotel Nov. 15, 1965, Disney spoke of a $100 million initial investment. That figure has grown to $500 million.

AP Wirepholo to The Sentinel last night DEFENDANT SMILES . . . Just before verdict Jury Acquits Dr. Coppolino FREEHOLD, N.J. (UPI) Dr. Carl A. Coppolino was found innocent Thursday of the alleged strangle-slaying of retired Army Lt. Col. William E. Farber and was reunited in the courtroom with his wife and mother in tearful embrace. "My prayers have been an-swered," his mother, Anna, whispered into her son's ear as he held his arms around both women at the counsel table while his youthful defense attorney, F. Lee Bailey, looked on. FOR BAILEY, 33, the acquittal in less than four and one-half hours of his 34-year-old client was the second major victory in two consecutive months in a nationally spotlighted murder case. Last month, Bailey won acquittal in Cleveland for Dr. Samuel H. Sheppard, whose 1954 murder conviction had been reversed by the U. S. Supreme Court last July. (Continued Back Pg.
