When Marshall Cooper left The League in protest of Judge Hugh Walker's rule changes in 1929, he eventually started up his own league 3 years later. One franchise was awarded to Wichita, Kansas. Wichita Duststorms joined The League in 1937 after the two leagues merged when Walker sold his interest to Cooper. Wichita managed to make the League Championship in 1939, falling to the Boston Spirit. The Wichita team, however, ceased to exist after The League was contracted during World War II. It is unknown whether the team was folded outright or became one of the relocated teams.
