In the black-and-white photograph, two men are holding onto a rope stretched over a Big Creek, playing tug-of-war. The first man is holding onto the rope with one hand and is falling into the water in the photo. He is wearing a long-sleeved, button-up shirt, jeans, and canvas shoes. He is smiling as he is pulled into the river. The college male on the right continues to pull on the rope while standing on the bank. The student is wearing a light-colored shirt and cut-off jean shorts. He is standing in tall grass. Behind the students is a third student bent over or falling forward. He wears jeans and a wide leather belt. There are reflections of trees in the water.
