Americans' understanding of Trotsky and Stalin, c. 1937?

In 1937, Time magazine put Harry Bridges on its cover and gave him several pages.  The subtitle on the cover was, "A Trotsky to Lewis' Stalin?"  In the accompanying article, that peculiar comment was repeated but not explained:  "Both Harry Bridges and John Lewis are working for Labor, both believe in political action by Labor. But their thinking processes are as different as those of Trotsky and Stalin."
