Germany Expected to Grant Trotsky Visa Today

Download PDF for this date

The visa requested by Leon Trotsky for entering into Germany will be granted today, it is predicted. The majority of the Cabinet members are in favor of granting him a visa, it was declared.

Meanwhile objection to Trotsky’s being admitted to the country for the purpose of taking a cure has been raised by German health resorts. On the initiative of the spa Wiesbaden, a petition has been submitted to the government demanding that no visa be granted Trotsky since his presence would spoil business at the resort where he would elect to take the cure, it is claimed.

After twenty years in the rabbinate, Rabbi Louis D. Gross has been granted a year’s sabbatical leave by the board of trustees of Union Temple, Brooklyn, N. Y.
