Aaron Pryor, the former junior welterweight champion, returned to boxing for the first time in 17 months Wednesday night and knocked out Daryl Jones at 1:15 of the third round at Madison, Wis., ending a day which saw the fight canceled and reinstated. Pryor, who was a champion from 1980-85, knocked Jones down twice in the second round. He then finished off his former sparring partner with a four-punch combination, ending it with a right hand. Jones tried to get up but was counted out.

In a stinging rebuke to President Clinton, a Senate panel Wednesday killed the candidacy of the first black ever nominated to be Air Force secretary because of doubts about his candor and veracity. On a dramatic tie vote, the Senate Armed Services Committee voted down the selection of Daryl Jones, a Florida state senator and former fighter pilot, after long and anguished deliberations over his business dealings and record in the Air Force Reserve.

Earl Ofari Hutchinson laments the Senate's rejection of Daryl Jones' nomination for secretary of the Air Force (Commentary, July 27) by saying that it was racially motivated and was flimsily based on allegations that "he was a lousy flyer, collected extra pay for flight time he didn't earn, sought to sell Amway products to enlisted Air Force personnel, improperly lobbied . . . and then gave conflicting responses when questioned." Pardon me? From here that looks suspiciously like incompetence, defalcation, abuse of authority, conflict of interest and perjury.
