FRIDAY,pCTOBER 7. 1932 BLYTHEV1LLE; (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PACE THBBB Once Powerful, Now Exile Former Leader of Red Annies Barred From Europe and America. By MILTON BRONNER ' NEA Service Writer LONDON.—The doors of tin ni- tions remain closed to lonely, all- in" spade-bearded Leon Trotzky. The march of the years and 1)12 growth of the Bolshevist movement from a radical theory to a recognizable form of governnnnv, have not lessened foreign countries'fears , of the'oncc-dynamlc man who, with 11 Lenin, ruled Russia after the Revolution. The recent action of Czscho-slo- vakia In refusing admittance tc Trotzky has added another to the list of powers that hove barred him and bade him famous as the rrw J- crn counterpart of "The Man Without a Country." Since Stalin made himself the uncontested master of Russia. Tratz- ky has been living in exile in the dull Prinkipo Islands near Istanbul, Turkey. Stalin'i agents, after having taken Trotzky into exile in a remote village in Turkestan, still considered him dangerous to their boss. So they booted him out in 1929 and Mustapha Kema), Prosi- de ntof Turkey. aUo-.vcd him to live in Prinkipo. The climate there K bad, life is dull and the amenitier few. And Trotzky is a sick man. Although only 53, he looks yearf older. His hair is goin° gray. He twisted with rheumatism. He har the gout, ite also his chronic colitis. • • • When Trotzky landed in Prinki- po, he at once set about trying tc' get permission to live elsewhere. First he applied to Germany. He did so because German doctors had in former years treated him for his many ills. The once-arrogant head of the Red Army, which he had built, applied to the Germans In most humble terms. He guaranteed he would live in complete Isolation outside of Berlin, would in no case present himself at public meetings, and in his writings would conform strictly -to the regulations of German laws on the subject. The governmental officials charged with the affair said they did no 1 think Trotzky was so sick that hr absolutely needed German doctors \ and German waters. He wired bad< he was willing to submit to sn examination by any medical com mission they chose to name and f sign a written engagement to leave Germany as soon as bis cure TW finished. Germany was adamant No visa would be granted him.
