The city administration admitted today it had failed to meet its slum problem successfully and that blighted areas were spreading faster than rehabilitation.

In the wake of a series of articles portraying horrendous conditions in the city's slums, this newspaper assigned a team of reporters to ask city officials about what they intended to do about it.

In this eighth and final installment of the NY World-Telegram and Sun's "I Lived in a Slum" series, Woody Klein reports on the reaction of city officials.
