description:

Law Students and Medical Students participating in the Boress feud. The Sawbones (med students) and the Shysters (law students) were engaged in a game of tug-of-war over the Jordan River until the rope broke and the students fell into the river. Then they just started trying to dunk each other into the stagnant water. The tug-o-war took place after the softball game that year.
