*** The following picture came from the personal file of our Founding President Jesus Jayme: the first UP Beta Sigma Fraternity Ball.

         

          

 

 

                  *** The following picture was sent by Wally Rodriguez'63 of New York, a great find from Philippinensian.

          

 

 

 

    *** The following picture was sent by Freddy Fajardo'64, who skippered the 1974 rodeo team champion Beta Sigma Tumbleweeds.

 

     

       That was Rodeo '75 pic during the oath taking of sportsmanship. L-R: Tony Pusag, George Gines, Manolo 'Peter Fonda' Banzon,

       Pooks Pagcaliwagan, Vee "Jimi Hendrix' de Vera, and Herbert Ticzon. The following is an excerpt from the article, 'The Tumbleweeds

       in the College Rodeo' by Brod Uly Lustria. This will be published in the Chronicle Project being prepared by Brod Dutch Aragones.

 

       Beta Sigma's Tumbleweeds rodeo team skippered by Freddie Fajardo, assisted by Leo Balagot with Tony Ordoveza as coach

       copped the coveted championship crown in the 1974 Rodeo. Tying for second place were the IH Hi-Men Wreckers and the Wild

       Bunch, with the Rough Riders taking the third place. Crowned Rodeo Queen '74 was Miss Lisbeth de Padua, muse of the IH Hi-Men

       Wreckers. In 1974, the 'First Marlboro-Greenhills Roundup' was held at the Greenhills Shopping Center. Seven UPLB teams composed

       of students and alumni played. An American team, the Sacramento Cowboys, composed of Clark airbase American servicemen pitted

       their talents with the locals. Other local teams were the experienced BAI Selection and the cowhands of the Ortigas Ranch.  Again,

       Beta Sigma's Tumbleweeds with Freddie Fajardo as team captain, Leo Balagot, co-captain, and Rudy Abad, playing coach clinched

       the championship trophy.  This might as well be the first national Pinoy rodeo of sort and the Tumbleweeds was the first national

       rodeo champ!

 

 

 

      *** The following picture was sent by Johnny Regadio'66. Johnny was past GP of UP Beta Sigma NorCal, current president of UP

           Alumni Assn. of Sacramento and current president of the UP Forestry Alumni Assn. of North America.      

   

       

          I believe this is a celebration after our final initiation (Forestry Batch'66). These are the brods that I can identify, from right to left

         (seated): Johnny Salud, Nory Carino, Chris Vilar, can't identify, Crisanto Estabillo, Johnny Regadio (deep center), Manny Labastilla,

          can't identify, Isabelo Tobias, Vic Valdepenas, Celestino (?) Tolentino, Allen Torrenueva, Dick Delizo, Orlino Ancheta (?).

          Naty Galdiano (he almost died during our finals), Melchor de la Cruz, Pete Galapia, Rodolfo Matusalem (hika), Rene de Rueda,

          Serna, Enggie de Gracia, Edmundo Sibal, Pons Betguen (surot), Guy Abesamis, Sumajit (?), Pelucio Celso. I don't know if Mariano

          Salvador, Jimmy Dimaano, Onofre Balila (terror) and Angelito Valencia are in the picture.

 

 

 

     *** The following pictures were sent by Dr. Jopet Laraya'63.  After receiving his DVM at UP, Vanguard Jopet immigrated to Canada

          and completed his DVM at University of Guelph in Ontario where he practiced for many years before moving to HK.  He teaches

          karate and arnis de mano to the resident brods.  He is a pro bono visiting surgical instructor at the Vet Med College in Los Banos.  

          Pet Grajo'60 (Pic 1) of Folkways/Bar Stool Singers fame lives in New Jersey.  Fred Young'66 (Pic4), AB Economics, got his

          masters degree in economic devt. at Williams College in Massachusetts and PhD in Economics at UP, a classmate of one

          Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.  Fred is the director of economics and statistics at the Ministry of Finance in Regina, Saskatchewan. 

 

           

             Pic 1: Pet Grajo'60 & Jopet Laraya'63 at                Pic 2: Jopet doesn't remember brod's name. He thinks he's from College of

                      Batch'63 Frat Ball at Sulo Restaurant.               Arts & Sciences or Law.  (*Note:Joe Llames'61 has confirmed it is him).

 

         

Pic 3: Norman Bituin'65 & Jopet at Araneta Center, just an open field then - before        Pic 4: Fred Young'66 & Jopet at UP Area 2,

                  Farmers Market, Ali Mall and Gateway Mall. Dated by Jopet as 5/14/65.                       sometime 1966.

        The following is our first "Memory Lane" guessing game. Try and identify the brods and ladies in these pictures.

        These pics are late '60's, early-mid '70's. See if you can recognize a brod with a "prk" ("pang romansang katawan") - then.

        Send your answers by email to the up-beta-sigma-fraternity-international-@googlegroups.com and/or nmbituin@msn.com.

        The correct answers will be printed under the pictures. Keep on watching this section. And send your classic photos, too!!

            *Bonus: here are 4 clues to the "prk"/super slim brod: 1) he is a "G.I." - "Genuine Ilocano" from Vigan, Ilocos Sur;

             2) his batch is UPD'67a: 3) he was past GP of UP NorCal; and 4) he is current prez of UPBSFI.  Tough, huh?

                                                                                   GOOD LUCK!!

 

         And the answers:
