The above and below ''Future Chess'' and this comment are intended as one.
In his book Morley lets the side corridors exist without the back corridors.  If we can use the side Morley corridors with the Gustavian corners, there becomes the conventional Capablanca 8x10. After much excitement for a year, there was disenchantment in 1947/48 about Morley's boards' intended improvement.  The question became, what good were they, the extra squares? Alexander Alekhine had died.  They turned their attention to the new championship: The world had more pressing problems, and Morley's one contribution was forgotten except by the chess variationists.  What goes around comes around.
