The compromise reference came from a Northern senator during tte opening session of a two-day hearing of the Joint Tidelands Commit tee. City Manager John R. Mansell branded as "ridiculous and premature" three Senate tidelands fund bills which would hand over 100 percent of shoreline oil revenue! to the state treasury. SEN. Stephen Teale, D-i West Point, retorted that he felt it was perfectly proper for the state to start on one extreme side of a negotiation matter and the city on the other extreme side "even if the bills do frighten Long Beach.'* In a follow-up reference to compromise, Teale then add-! ed: "Maybe well wind op in' the middle." Half the tide-! lands oil revenues row go into a tidelands trust fund.
