A limited number of members of the Class of 1932 will be offered hold-offs by the eight Junior Fraternities tonight. Each Fraternity will elect no less than one and not more than three men. No man who is at this time on general warning or on probation can be offered a hold-off.
The procedure is as follows: when a hat man enters the room of a prospective candidate, he will say "Mr. Blank, do you accept a hold-off from K. K. K." If Mr. Blank shakes hands, he is pledged to this fraternity. If he does not shake hands, it is a turndown, and the hat man must leave at once.
In the event that two or more men of the Calling Committees should meet outside a room with the intention of offering a hold-off, they shall match, and the winner shall have the opportunity of offering the first hold-off to the individual concerned. -- Yale News.
