(Studio) House subcommittee says because of bureaucratic mismanagement 11 million children of poor families didn't receive Medicaid medical exams in 1974; says 1/2 should have been treated for serious ailments. Subcommittee chairperson Representative John Moss blames Department of Health, Education and Welfare for poor administration of Medicaid program; spokesperson for HEW says department has been slow in getting program off, but since study made, progress has been made.
