You might say Mary D. Allen is in the dream business. Allen is too hardheaded to see it quite that way. But the description is apt for a woman who is just as energetic a philanthropist now as she was a businesswoman who made her money running the Beacon Oil refinery back when women were only supposed to inherit fortunes. She gave $3 million to build a tower at the Doheny Eye Institute, and there is a lobby named for her in an orthopedic hospital downtown.

"You have to be very composed," said Urban, defending women's champion in the 35-to-39 age group. "You need to go in fast and hard and you must have a great technique. It's only the two of us up there and it can be pretty nerve-racking."
