On “The Honeymooners” (CBS, 1955-56), what are the requirements for membership in the Raccoon lodge?

The applicant must have obtained a public school diploma, must have resided in the United States for the past six months, and must pay a $1.50 initiation fee for membership in the Raccoon lodge on “The Honeymooners”.

Ed Norton (Art Carney) objects that because of the residency rule, Anthony Eden could not become a Raccoon.
