Members of the League of Bald-Headed Men in custody at the bowling alley.

Smuggling unit of KAOS.

League of Bald-Headed Men members include Winters and Sommers who plan to steal the famed Morris Diamond from Spiegle's Jewelry Store and transport it out of the country via the League's distribution center at a Washington bowling alley. However, Maxwell Smart, shopping for an engagement ring for his fiancée 99, arrives at the store while the robbery is in progress, alerting CONTROL to the plot. Winters and Sommers, and a number of other League members, are eventually arrested at the bowling alley, all with stolen gems hidden under their toupees.

Although using their trademark baldness to identify each other, as the Chief explains, "just because somebody's bald doesn't mean he's a member of the League", apparently clearing movie star Yul Brynner and Secretary of State Dean Rusk of any involvement.

Reality Check: "The League of Bald-Headed Men" refers to the Sherlock Holmes story "The Adventure of the Red-Headed League" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
