Post as Psrotesi WASHINGTON, Feb. 2 (/I 3 )—In protest against what he termed the "reactionary policies and discriminatory discriminatory practices" of the army air forces, William H. ITastie has resigned resigned as civilian aide to Secretary of War Stimson. Hastie, Negro dean of law at Howard Howard university here, said in announcing announcing his resignation last night: "The simple fact is that the air command docs not want Negro pilots flying in and out of various fields, eating, sleeping and mingling with other personnel, as a service pilot must do in carrying out his various missions." Ever since he protested in 1940 against setting up a segregated training center for Negro pilots at Tuskegee university in Alabama, Hastie said, the air command has ignored him.
