Today, in Spokane, Wash., a group of exuberant, un inhibited business and professional men are proving the vigorous old tradition of fron tier-style satire isn’t dead. The Knights of the Athletic Round Table, as they call themselves, are cockeyed Robin Hoods who, while keeping America chuck ling at their campaigns against stuffed shirts and hot air, gleefully rob themselves, but nobody else, to make the Northwest’s Inland Empire a better, happier place to live. Nearly everybody remembers their "Bun dles For Congress” drive when Congress men voted themselves pensions a few years ago. It exploded over the land with such hilarious howls that Congress hastily backed down. Not everyone knows, how ever, that these same pranksters have given ments or contributions. The Athletic Round Table has been laughing since 1920, when sports enthusiasts began lunching together in the Desert Hotel. Spark plug was a stocky, black-eyed, sober-faced, pixie-minded attor ney. Joseph Aloysius Albi. Now 54, he is the first and only president, and is still chief gag man. The club's mascot is a silly-looking wood en horse named Esmeralda which, like Little Audrey, just laughs and laughs — a horse laugh at fakers and folderol. Lusty Hecklers Round Tablers always have been lusty hecklers. The late Vic Desert, hotel owner, was a favorite victim. Once when he ar ranged a formal luncheon for a famous visitor, they stacked the furniture in a comer, built a campfire on the marble floor and squatted around it, wrapped in Indian blankets and eating from a 10-gallon lard pail. away $600,000, mostly to youngsters, to promote clean sport, that they have im pounded another half million in War Bonds for future giving.

For everybody, they built a ski run and lately gave the city land for a new municipal golf course. Orphanages got pro fessional uniforms and sports gear by the carload. It’s all done with laughs, without assess E,x-iviayor rreeiand Kendnck of Phila delphia, visiting Spokane, once innocently mentioned his “shooting box in Maryland.” Round Tablers invited him to luncheon, drew him into conversation about duck hunting. “How many ducks do you see at one time in Maryland?” politely asked President Albi. “Oh,” said the mayor, wav ing expansively, “hundreds of them!” Whereupon hundreds of Knights hurled their napkins into the air, drew shotguns from beneath tables, whooped joyously and opened fire. Mr. Kendrick was gun-shy for months afterwards. TW—8-91-49
