    UNDER the directorship of E. C. Chubb this combined institution continues to make steady progress, reflected in an increase of visitors, who hi the year ending July 31, 1938, numbered 123,771. The educational value of the collections is increased by the lectures to the public and to school children delivered by the staff, and modern developments are shown in the appointment of a guide-lecturer, through the generosity of the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the extended use of cinematograph films to illustrate museum lectures, and the scheme which enables assistants to visit other South African museums for the purpose of gaining experience hi museum technique, a scheme sponsored by the South African Museums Association.
