History of Gamma Zeta

The year was 1972 and brother Carpenter Arpa III of Beta Nu Chapter, Ateneo de Zamboanga, came to the Zamboanga AE College (now Universidad de Zamboanga) and introduced the ideals of Alpha Phil Omega. With the invaluable help of Bro Oskar Enriquez of Southern City Colleges and Bro. Nonoy Paulas of Siliman Univ., Gamma Zeta came to be what it is now today.

A Genome for Gamma Zeta:

The first organizational meeting to put up the ZAEC chapter was made on September 19, 1972 from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. at the place of Sis Rose Ungab (Beta Nu, AdeZ.) Members present were Bros. Sonny Arpa, Max Sangca, Yahiya "Tabs" Daud, Arsad "Paco" Jamali and Ali Mohammad.

The second meeting involving the interview of applicants was made on September 21, 1972. It was in the afternoon that members learned officially that Martial Law was in effect throughout the country. Members present were the same ones aforementioned, joined by Bros. Amerigo Jumalon and Sammy Francisco.

Martial Law notwithstanding, the presentation, lecture and baptism of accepted applicants was made on September 22, 1972 (Sunday) at Caragasan Beach.

Pre-session was made at Pasonanca Park on October 22, 1972. Beta Nu brods and sis were also present.

Final initiation was done in Kawit on October 29, 1972 producing the first batch - The 5-Man Army (in commemoration of Martial Law).

December 19, 1972 saw a joint Christmas party attended by members from ZAEC and Ateneo, the first ever. This was followed on March 29, 1973 with a friendly inter-chapter basketball game between ZAEC and Ateneo brods.

January 13, 1973 - First election of officers.

The rest is history.

Subject: Re: good to hear from you.

Hello, Bro Frank;

Got into the website for APO Beta NU and Gamma Zeta Chapters. As additional info on Gamma Zeta's founding, it would be apt to mention I had the invaluable help of Bro Oskar Enriquez of Southern City Colleges and Bro. Nonoy Paulas of Siliman. There are some corrections on the names of some of its chartered members. Their names and surnames should be: Pacsymar Abubakar, Arolas Abdul, Bill Ali Abdulajim and Estanislao Eslao.

Although Bro Macmod Sangka is known as "Maxie", I recall his initiation name as "Ram" also. The initiation name of Valentino Suarez is "Kamagong". I can't recall yet the initiation names of the other chartered members. I cannot recall also Edgar Kunti which is not to say that he is not a member. But we should add Bro Noel Malana as one unless the latter is with APO in Southern City College.

Bro Valentino Suarez was the next Grand Chancellor after me. He signed into "law" the Initiation Code and Code of Conduct of APO Gamma Zeta in 1976. These handsomely bound code books were turned over to the Chapter's Historian for safekeeping, together with the gold and blue history book of the chapter. Like Beta Nu's history book, it is replete with pictures of chapter activities, frolics, initiations and the rituals. Gamma Zeta's rituals were done with black robes and capes with the trefoil on the forehead. The ritual team carried torches of course, hence APO's journalistic appellation, Torch and Trefoil!

Our brothers and sisters in Gamma Zeta should know about this and be proud. Gamma Zeta was organized just after martial law was declared and when assemblies of more than 5 persons were against the law. We prevailed to be what we are today.

So it was, and so may we always be!

Historical Notes:

1. January 3, 1974 - Formal petition for recognition is filed with the APO National Office

2. March 2, 1977 - Full compliance with all necessary requirements are made.

3. May 3, 1977 - Officially recognized as Gamma Zeta Chapter and officially entered as such in the National Record.

4. May 23, 1977 - Official letter of recognition sent to Founder/Organizer.
