Eton's Block & Birch

Sir:

In Colonel Bodley's letter re Eton's whipping block [TIME, Jan. 24], there are a few reminders of a visit to Eton . . . The whipping block . . . had the birch rod standing beside it looking like a broom for sweeping garden leaves, but with a very stout handle. My wife said: "That wouldn't hurt much." The reply was "Madam -- I would like you to remember there's nothing between the boy and the birch" . . .
