The state also seeks reimburse- ment for any customers whose money or property was taken through illegal business prac- tices, as well as injunction for- bidding the firm to engage in such practices. The suit lists 11 causes of ac- tion.

A. R. Patrick, Alberta mines and minerals minister, said the government should have had the opportunity of appraising the Ontario use of Alberta gas. For one thing, he said, the government has discouraged the use of gas in Alberta plants and the Ontario decision puts the government in an awkward position. He said it ties up several tril- lion cubic feet of Alberta nat- ural gas reserves, limits ex- ports, and puts people out of work. There are two implications for the petroleum industry as a whole, he said in an interview.

Tropical Plants In Alberta EDMONTON (CP) Visitors who have tried their green thumbs on tropical plants turn green with envy when they visit the University of Alberta's dis- play greenhouse. "It's probably the best collec- tion of tropical plants in West- em said Helge Well- ing, greenhouse supervisor. Approximately 150 genera are represented, with up to 20 spec- ies in some of these. Among the tropical plants of general interest are banana, coffee, pomegranate, cotton, sugar cane, fig, bamboo, ginger and avocado. The greenhouse displays are used by several university de- partments. Plant physiologists and pathologists use plants or parts of plants for demonstra- tions in laboratory classes, bo- tany students find them useful in studies on plant relationships and fine-arts students come in to draw and paint them. And, although it's a small 50- by-50-foot area, many students and university visitors find it a pleasant place to visit during Edmonton's cold winters.
