We calculate the character table of a sharply 5-transitive subgroup of \alter(12), and of a sharply 4-transitive subgroup of \alter(11). Our presentation of these calculations is new because we make no reference to the sporadic simple Mathieu groups, and instead deduce the desired character tables using only the existence of the stated multiply transitive permutation representations.
