Exploring Stone Age Arnhem Land 747 The Expedition's Medico and His Assistant Weigh a Female Patient Dr. Brian Billington (left) and Kelvin Hodges, a biochemist, both of the Australian Institute of Anatomy, Canberra, set up their dispensary tent near the Oenpelli mission station and examined dozens of natives. Dr. Billington made it a rule to attend to old men first, for they passed judgment on whether he practiced evil magic (page 750). Fortunately, the tests always received their approbation. Some patients developed a taste for cough medicine and kept returning for more after being cured. Oenpelli was the last of three main bases.
