RED STORM RISING: ALLEN NOT MARGE'S CUP OF TEA

     Despite learning that Marge Schott plans to replace him as
CEO when his interim period ends in three weeks, John Allen plans
to continue ticket discounts -- a practice that reportedly
"irked" Schott -- and is seeking approval to display the retired
numbers of former Reds manager Fred Hutchinson and catcher Johnny
Bench in Riverfront Stadium.  Schott can nominate her long-term
replacement for CEO, but that person must be approved by MLB.
Allen, who says he would want to continue as controller:  "It's
her team.  She owns it.  It's her prerogative" (HOUSTON
CHRONICLE, 7/23).
