Bundle board, I think. 
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

I think it was sweet. The idea of "bundling" was to talk all night and get to know each other. And also the trust the parents had in their kids. If the best you could do was stare at the ceiling you might be "out". Better have a few sonnets ready, LOL.

Actually, in bundling they sewed the young man into a bundle so he couldn't do ... anything. Allowed for "pillow talk" and not much else. One hopes he remember to hit the chamber pot before that.

The open door is another part of the gimmick. "No proper lady should ever be behind closed doors with her suitor."

The good old days.  How we all yearn for a return to normality.  <sigh>

As I understand it the young lady secreted a needle and a bit of thread so as to close  up any holes that mysteriously form in the bundle during the night. I'm sure the place where the hole would form could be found easily in the dark.

Her bust is located in the Walhalla memorial along the Danube. Who, Why?

Was she a member of The White Rose?  I don't remember her name.

Yes, Sophie Scholl.  Executed along with her brother and friend by the nazis for distributing antiwar leaflets.

Brave gal. Sometimes I wonder what I would have under the same circumstances.

She was not as heroic as it seems.  After all, she is antifa!!  It was right to execute her--just a rabble rouser.

Her last leaflet was smuggled out of Germany and dropped by allied planes.  Aside from making the students widely known in Germany, it didn't have much of an effect on the actual war.

Don’t know the name of it, but I think it’s the type that is associated with Bat Masterson. Kind of a derby thing?

Another case where Hollywood movies define our collective idea of history.
