My Personal Tribute to Beda7882
by Gus Gastrock (SBC GS'78 - HS'82)
 

 

The Bedan Hymn
Written by the late Sen. Raul Roco & Benildus Maramba, OSB,


The Bedan Hymn

 play mp3 music
Herald the Bedans coming
May their fellowship never cease
Molded by bold, undaunted men
Of pray'r, work and peace

Through the carefree days of our boyhood
And the visions of our youth
You gave us the wisdom of Benedict's soul
Faith in God and love of the truth

When we encounter trials and hardships
We shall give you honor and fame
For nothing but this, show our loyalty clear
To our Alma Mater's name

Bring out the challenges, we'll win them all
And fear neither fire nor blood
Bedans will answer the clarion call
For San Beda, our country, and God!
 

 

NCAA - in All it's Glory

1) "Herald the Bedans Coming" on every start of the game

 
 
2) the "Indian Yell" - the reverberating Indian Yell that will shake the very foundation of the mighty Mendiola unto their rivals most noteably Ateneo and Letran, who acknowledge and appreciate the formidability of the collective Bedan battlecry.

The Cuerba brothers, both Bedans, composed the yell in 1947 after the liberation from the Japanese empire. The Indian Yell was initially solely performed on drums accompanied by cheers from the students. However, but this made the cheer lacking in power and they needed something to rejuvinate the audience. And so, they changed the sound of the yell and incorporated a horn section. With this modification, the “dull” Indian Yell became lively and full of spirit.

The Indian Yell is San Beda's romanticized version of the Indian war whoop. It mimics the native Indian war chants and vocalization techniques designed to intimidate the opponent together with the accompanying hand gestures. North American Indian war chants are simply verbalization of tunes that implore the great spirits to help them in battle.

The Indian war whoop also gave rise to various derivative chants most especially the Lion's Roar. The Lion’s roar, with the simple OOOOhhhhhhh, also mimics primitive chants of Native Indians. Bedans popularized this aboriginal-based form of chanting in the Philippine collegiate league and has spawned variations now used by many other schools.

The Native Indians symbolize courage and defiance. This is also true with the ancient Scottish warriors and their Red Lion Rampant. From the Old World Bedans adopted the Red Lion while from the New World they adopted the Native Americans. Both are Red and both are symbols of Courage.

The ingredients were actually ripe for an Indian inspired theme to gain popularity and acceptance among Bedans. San Beda College has one of the most prestigious Scouting movements in the country.

Worldwide Scouting and the infatuation with North American Indian cultures grew hand in hand. Indians became one of the major "lure" to recruit boys into the movement. Combining this boyhood infatuation and reinforced by the popularity of “Cowboys and Indian” movies led to the blossoming of an Indian inspired theme in San Beda.

For Beda 7882

This site is only as good as the info we have. We need updates of our former classmates DEAD or ALIVE. This site will probably expire by the year 2050. The last surviving person on this list (shall we say the winner) should maintain this site at all cost.
