She's 73 and it shows--but the Rose Bowl is about to get in shape. The Rose Bowl Operating Co. Board has recommended a $20-million bond sale to pay for an overhaul of the aging Pasadena stadium. On Sept. 11, the board's recommendation goes before the Pasadena City Council, which has the final say. "This is the fast track to getting this project done now," said board member Robert W. Monk. "The alternative is a Rose Bowl that decays and rusts."

Rose Bowl officials declined Thursday to offer a lease to USC, instead recommending that USC first attempt to work out its differences with the Coliseum Commission. After meeting in closed session at the Pasadena stadium, the Rose Bowl Operating Company board announced that it would take no action on USC's two-year lease proposal, but left open the possibility of revisiting the issue.

The Rose Bowl Operating Co. said it will delay seating renovations for the 73-year-old Pasadena stadium until 1997, leaving temporarily intact 3,000 seats planned for removal. As part of a $20-million renovation, old bench seating will be replaced with theater-type chairs, said Al Moses, president of the operating company. But making the stadium more comfortable and wheelchair accessible means the 100,000-seat arena will have to accommodate fewer fans.

Porfirio Frausto, a member of the Rose Bowl Operating Committee, wore an NFL logo pin on his lapel Thursday. It was the first time he wore it since buying it at the Super Bowl a decade ago. "Now's the time," said Frausto, a past president of the committee. "We said a long time ago that we'd get one at-bat with the NFL, one pitch. No strikeouts. Just one pitch. Now we're getting it."

Beer will continue to flow during the Rose Bowl game on New Year's Day, but smoking will be restricted to certain areas of the stadium, the general manager of the facility's operating company decided Thursday.

An outdoor amphitheater at Pasadena's Rose Bowl that would rival the Hollywood Bowl as a concert venue is expected to move closer to reality today. The Rose Bowl Operating Co. board, which oversees the city-run facility, will review a proposal for a three-year deal with a group of local business leaders who want to turn the south end of the bowl into a 15,000- to 20,000-seat venue for concerts ranging from classical music to pop vocalists such as Gloria Estefan.

The embryonic Rose Bowl Operating Co. seemed on the verge of being swept aside in a heated dispute over who should be on its board when, as the City Council debated the matter Tuesday, a telephone rang. City Manager Philip Hawkey reached under the horseshoe-shaped table around which the council deliberates and picked up the phone, which was clanging like a wind-up alarm clock. "Isaac?" he said.

The City Council in closed session refused to approve a $75,000 settlement in a lawsuit filed by the former executive secretary of the Rose Bowl general manager, even though both parties agreed to the terms, officials said Tuesday.
