The "against" device, was a symbol of punishment, most often it was a little piece of wood, a stick. It was handed over from one pupil to another, every time they said a basque word. The pupil who had the stick in his possession at the end of the day was punished. Thus, the "euskara" was seen as a symbol of punishment. It was in use until the year 1950, as an effective tool of repression against the basque language.
