DEATHS ELSEWHERE

April 21, 1995

Milovan Djilas, 83, Yugoslavia's best-known dissident, died yesterday of heart failure at his home in Belgrade. He once was a favored deputy of Marshal Josip Broz Tito, the founder of postwar Yugoslavia, and Tito's ally during the country's traumatic break with Moscow in 1948. He fell from grace when he publicly criticized the policies of Tito, who disowned him. He spent the rest of his life as a political outcast, renouncing his former Marxist convictions and writing works of dissent that gained him fame in the West.
