Leon Trotsky, exiled Soviet leader, intends to apply to the United States government for permission to enter the country, according to reports current here today.

It was stated that before making formal application to the State Department, Trotsky intends to get in touch with the American Federation of Labor to obtain its consent. He desires, it was declared, to resume publication of the Russian journal, “Novy Mir,” which he published in New York in 1914.

In the meantime it was reported here that the Turkish authorities have waived the original time limit on Trotsky’s stay in the country and will permit him to settle here permanently.
