Katrine, those actually sort of _are_ breadsticks. They called them 
sops, and were the fancier version of the bit of bread you wipe the last 
of the soup up with. Henisch talks about them in _Fast and Feast_, but 
my copy is buried here somewhere in the pre-war packing mess and I'm not 
going to dig through the pile to find it. For all I know Jimmy Hoffa is 
in there.
