Why are there two lines to leave a tip at Trader Vic's?

In the US here....after dining at Trader Vic's recently, I was surprised to see two lines on the credit card slip for leaving a tip: one for "captain" and one for "waiter." There's a nautical theme and all there, so does captain=maitre d'/hostess? I've never seen a tip line specifically for that. Anyone else see this, at Trader Vic's or otherwise? Or is this a new innovation thanks to the recession?
