Pledge of loyalty: If you work for a man, in heaven’s name,

work for him,

speak well of him,

and stand by the institution that he represents.


an ounce of loyalty

is worth a pound of cleverness. If you must grawl,

condemn and eternally find fault, why?

resign your position!

And when you are in the outside, damn to your heart’s contents!

But as long as you are a part of the institution, do not condemn it.

For if you do,

the first high wind that comes along will blow you away.

And probably,

you’ll never know why. TAGALOG:


Kung Maglilingkod ka sa isang tao, sa nglan ng langit paglingkuran mo siya, ipagkapuri mo siya at manindigan sa institusyon na kanyang kinakatawan. Alalahanin mo na ang isang butil ng katapatan ay

kasinghalaga ng isang kabang katalinuhan.

Kung kinakailangan mong magsuwail, manuligsa at mamintas ng walang hanggang aba, magbitiw sa tungkulin at kapag tiwalag ka na ay saka magtungayaw ng buong kasiyahan mo. Ngunit habang ikaw ay bahagi ng isang institusyon, huwag mo itong lapastanganin. Kapag ginawa mo iyan ay papalisin ka ng unang unos na daratal at marahil kailanman ay hindi mo na matatalos pa kung BAKIT.

fellowman in the Brotherhood of Alpha Phi Omega.

The four squares about the cross, each contain three drops of blood. These twelve drops symbolize the twelve parts of the Scout Law;

Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent. These principles are our life's blood as we strive to make them the code of all mankind.

principles of this Fraternity: Leadership, Friendship, and Service.
