He recommended not, only an 1m- j^mediate reduction In "the variety, , ^ope and size of our foreign pro-' grams and activities" but major changes in the organization and management of government operations around the world. ; His proposals were set out In a report submitted to Vice President Nixon, the Senate president They were based on a survey Johnston made last fall, as chairman of the Senale Civil Service Committee of" federal pay flnd personnel. prac- .tlces in the Near East, Africa and Europe. .

Cherry already has named Comptroller Frank A Storey to be'dtrec- tor of the Department of Finance and Administration, which would be the hub of the new system. Swayed by administrative persuasion, the Senate yesterday killed an 18th amendment before pass- Ing the fiscal code; The amendment, by. Sen. John Cloer of Springdale, would have prohibited state board and commission members from selling anything to the state agency with which they are connected. It would have preserved provisions of a 1943 act which would be repealed by the fiscal code. ' Would Cripple Efforts Cherry, objected on the ground that It would cripple, his efforts to appoint the most capable persons to boards and commissions The Senate Tuesday approved the Cloer amendment, 21-11, but after a number of ts members had been culled In for conference with the' governor—backtracked yesterday by a vote of 31-4. Pleading for.his proposal, Cloer accused Cherry of breaking a campaign promise not to exert influence on the Legislature and declared that "our schools and our hlgh\vajs are no better than .they are because : of politics." "The issue," said Cloer whether we will progress or go on dabbling in politics, repaying special favors " "He maintained that "in the past" governors had appointed board members lo pay political debts, adding U' candidate:,} foi* nolmngr Sen loin Allen of Br.nklej sup ported Cloei. declaring ' You can't justify doing business with iourielf with tht taxpayers' mon ey " Allen admitted defeat with the comment that ' I reahre this thing is greised " Sens .Wiley Bean of Clarksvflle and W.

Wiley commented yesterday: "It was n good procedure, but it didn't work." The reason, he said, was that It takes up fo two months for an FBI field Investigation. Dulles had written Wiley that It was of Die utmost Importance to get his new Slate Department team into office at once: The secretary said five nominations were held up In committee. About 125 others, he said, would be submitted In the next few weeks, i' The committee thereupon set up an emergency procedure.

"If (he, committee feels I should dispose of my stock." he said, "I am prepared to do so." Stevens, who earlier had asked lor more lime to decide the ciues- lion, said he hoped the commttlee members would not "take.qulck action" on the Issue. ' Stevens went before the committee after President Elsenhower took a personal hand in the fi»ht for speedy confirmation of' his selections for secretaries of the armed services. Elsenhower decided to send formal nominations to the Senate and, In advance of their actual dispatch asked for hearings by Ihe Senate Armed Services committee on the nominees. Thc hearings quickly developed that the administration -was relying heavily on an order issued by Charles B.

The Senate seemed Inclined In advance to approve Robert Anderson, secretary of the Navy dcs- Ignafc.

At the outset of the hearing Chairman Snltonslall (-Mass) read a letter from Eisenhower asking for the hearing. He also called the committee's attention lo Wilson's directive.
