Khrushchev, ivho began a 15- day visit to Yugoslavia Tuesday, is seeking ways lo expand the new friendship in private talks w i t h President Josip Broz Tito, informed sources said. The premier's schedule for today included a visit to a moior plant, a private lunch and u dinner given by Tito 'in his honor. _Tuesday nighl the two Communist leaders praised a rebirth of m u t u a l national friendship, seemingly ending the rupture caused ny Moscow's expulsion of Yugoslavia fi-om the Communist bloc in IMS, "W'c consider that at the present time all conditions exist for a broader development of our cooperation," Tito said at an official dinner. "Our collaboration consistently is going toward in all directions."
