Ace Full-Seven-Eleven” — Manuscript Story

Why was the story entitled Ace Full-Seven-Eleven removed from the Original Manuscript of the Big Book and not included in the published first edition book?
There are a few theories as to why the story was dropped and only shows up in the Original Manuscript of the Big Book but we know of none that have good confirmation.

Among the theories are that the author wanted royalties for the story and was not going to get any. Another suggests the author objected to Bill W. claiming sole authorship and royalties for The Big Book. It has also been said that the author got drunk before the book went to press and they thought it best to drop the story.
