Supposedly, part of Skull and Bones' shtick is that if you're a member, and someone in the room says "Skull and Bones", you're supposed to leave the room. (The fact that this makes no sense, secrecy-wise, is part of the rumor's appeal.) When I was, uh, in school, everyone had a running joke that when S&B was mentioned someone would, of course, yell "Damn!" and get up as if to walk out. Ha ha ha!
Look at the form W filled out upon entering the guard -- the one that has the blacked-out answer to the arrest question: here. Note the part about organizations. Note that although he's listed Delta Kappa Epsilon, he hasn't listed Skull and Bones.
