Bushman and Bev erly Bayne In the sixteenth episode of "The Great Secret," and topping the whole with a delightful Metro comedy, today's City theatre program Is one for a king or a queen, or both. "High Play" Is largely the story of a bank's vice president loath to sep arate business and pleasure, the lat ter remanding too much of public no toriety. In the course of Its presen tation one of the principal parties to the story, John Servler, witnesses a murder and through force of circum stances Is restrained from informing the police.
