Sanity checking the names, Stalin was well established in power by 1934, and I'm assuming that's Trotsky in the lower left corner. Harold Ickes served as Secretary of the Interior under FDR starting in 1933. Rexford Tugwell (the guy riding the horse) was a key advisor, as was Henry Wallace, the guy with the shovel. Donald Richberg was the second head of the National Recovery Administration.

The signature is that of Pulitzer Prize winner Carey Orr, who was working for the Chicago Tribune in 1934. This cartoon does match his style, both artistically and politically.
