New York -- Pola Negri, Polish motion picture star who says she belongs to her public, was detained today by immigration authorities when she arrived on the S.S. Excalibur. Her 5-year permit has lapsed and has not been renewed, officials said when they took the actress to Ellis Island. Miss Negri, who has been making talking pictures in Germany and France for the past 7 years, said she has a good film offer in the United States and plans to take out citizenship papers, as "America is my second home." She stressed that "this is not a come-back," since "after all, I've been working in Europe all the time." (1941)
