Sister Linda Wood, 26, from Kent, who came to Australia in October 1960, now works as a nurse on a million-acre Aboriginal mission station on the arbour Plain, in the southern part of Australia. The Yalata Lutheran Mission is situated 125 miles east, Perth 1100 miles west. Her patients are mainly the 330 men, women and children of the Ooldea tribe, and some of their ills include burns and cuts when they make the boomerangs for which the mission has become well known in Australia and overseas. Linda Wood takes the temperature of Johnny, a 12 year-old aboriginal boy
