The signing of the visitors' book at the Glenelg Town Hail ii always one of the chief events of Commemoration Day. Lost year. although a special room was set

I abide for the pioneers to sign the book. tile quarters were found to be too cramped for the purpose, so yesterday a large area under the town hall balcony, on tihe sea front. was partitioned off with tarpaulins, which gave adequate room for the eign inz. Seats were placed all round, and many of the pioneers took advantage of: them to recline while awaiting their turn.' The oldest native present was Mrs. E. Merrett. who was born on March 9. 1839.   She is believed to be the oldest sur-   viving Port Adelaide native. Her parents . (Mr. and Mrs. G.
