SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The son of former Gov. Scott M. Matheson believes the open-air atomic testing whose dangers his father fought to expose caused the cancer that killed him.Matheson died Sunday at age 61 of multiple myeloma. He lived in Cedar City in the early 1950s when the government conducted dozens of above-ground tests 300 miles away in Nevada that caused radioactive fallout to drift into Utah.As governor from 1977 to 1985, Matheson fought to expose the dangers of those tests and gain compensation for radiation victims -- an effort that succeeded with the passage by Congress last week of a compensation bill.

About three decades ago, Pam Matheson pulled her 6-year-old out of the Rosewood Center, deciding that life would be better for her developmentally disabled son if he left the isolated Baltimore County institution and escaped what she calls the constant neglect of its staff. Reflecting last week on her decision, Matheson said the ensuing years have been good to Matthew, who was born with Cornelia de Lange syndrome. Matthew Matheson's arms end at his elbows. He cannot walk or speak, but he is happy because he is living - as best he can - like everyone else, his mother said.

&TC There's a hole where the soul of "Dying to Love You" ought to be.The CBS movie about a Maryland man who looks for love in the personal ads of a magazine and finds more than he bargained for is cookie-cutter, true-crime TV. It's superficial sex, gloss and one-dimensional characters moving from the mechanical kiss-kiss of their bedroom scenes to the predictable bang-bang of their fatal attraction.The most interesting thing about the film, which airs at 9 tonight on WBAL (Channel 11), is how neatly it fits into the moralistic, cautionary chorus of messages that prime-time TV pumps out night after night warning viewers (especially men)

Play-by-play sports radio is going the way of the dinosaur, at least on the American Forces Network. Responding to a survey that indicates military personnel and civilian employees overseas would rather watch than listen to sports events, the AFN has decided to drop radio play-by-play broadcasts by the end of the summer. The decision was based on a worldwide audience survey, conducted by the Department of Defense, of approximately 9,500 military and civilian employees stationed overseas.

IF THERE'S one subject that fosters bipartisan agreement in Congress, it's lawmakers who make a stink about the annual pay raise. They foul up a procedure for approving these boosts that was designed to let them go through unnoticed. So his colleagues were not amused when Rep. Jim Matheson, a Democrat from Utah, argued on the House floor Tuesday that in deference to mounting federal deficits and to families struggling through a weak economy, Congress should take a pass on its raise this year.

If Charles C. Feaga, a Howard County councilman and chairman of the liquor board, had his way, the three-day Columbia City Fair would be a dry affair.Mr. Feaga has sent a letter to the operators of the June 21-23 fair, arguing that in the past, serving beer, wine and mixed drinks "has been a factor in the disturbances which have occurred where the police department has had to intervene."In sending the letter, Mr. Feaga said he was writing not as chairman of the liquor board, but as a citizen who has a "deep concern" about the availability of alcoholic beverages at the Columbia fair.
