100358 On the back of this photo is a clipping from the Messenger as follows: An Inflexible Rule. Until World War II, the British Union Conference had an unwritten but quite inflexible rule that candidates for the Gospel ministry must spend at least two summers or six months in front-time literature-evangelism. The experience was deemed vital for ministerial training, and regardless of a student's academic prowess or his (or her) financial resources, was insisted upon before entry into full-time ministerial or Bible instructor service would be considered. It was as necessary as College Graduation itself. The rule was wise and good. Student-colporteurs generally conceded that the experience wrought more practical good in terms of character and personality development, than did their academic training. Above is a group of British student colporteurs of 1912. It includes celebrated and well-known names. The picture was sent by Broth Paul R Belton of Wolverhampton, architect son of the late ex-missionary to Africa, T G Belton who actually took the photograph by means of a self-operating device. All but one of these Stanborough College students are holding prospectuses of the book they sold that summer: nine sold Bible Readings, one sold The Great Controversy, and two young ladies sold Christ's Object Lessons. Brother Belton comments: 'It is interesting to think that The Great Controversy and Christ's Object Lessons were, at that time, by a contemporary author' (E G White died in 1915). We are indebted to ex-missionary Sister Belton, (Paul's mother,) for identifications. Front (from left): W McClements (for many years president of the West Africa Union Mission); E E (Ted) Craven (evangelist and mission president); Miss Ansty; Marjorie Brown (later Mrs Cooper, wife of the late Pastor T H Cooper, mother of Pastor V H Cooper); Brother Halford; Lionel Barrass (leading British evangelist of the early 1920s). Back row: Brother Bates; F W Coppock (minister in the NBC; father of Mrs R A Burgess); Arthur S Maxwell (minister, editor, author. Writer of 100 popular books including the 10-volume Bible Stories, and 48 volumes of Bedtime Stories); Brother Bayliss; S G Maxwell (minister, administrator, pioneer missionary, Brother of Arthur Maxwell); Brother Cuthbert (missionary); T G Belton (missionary). 'There were giants in the land in those days.' R D VINE, Editor 1912 Stanborough Press - photographic archive 94k
