Lighter sentence refused TEL AVTV (AP) An Israeli mititary court rejected an ap- peal for a lesser sentence by iwo young Arab girls serving life sentences for their part in hijacking a Belgian airliner to Israel last May. The court said the conviction and sentencing of Hima Issa Tannous, 19, and Therese Hala- seh, 21, was justified and said (heir acts did not merit a lighter sentence. The girls were sentenced to life In prison Aug. 14 after a military court convicted them of assisting two male accom- plices in commandeering a Sa- bcna 707 Jetliner in May with 97 persons aboard. The hijackers threatened to blow up the plane unless Arab guerrilla prisoners were re- leased. Israeli commandos, disguised as mechanics, stormed the plane and rescued the hostages. The two male hijackers were killed and a passenger was fa- tally wounded. The girls were convicted of hijacking, carrying concealed weapons and belonging to an Arab terrorist organization. Trade payments balance higher OTTAWA (CP) Canada's balance of payments from July lo September produced a million current-account deficit on a seasonally-adjusted basis, Statistics Canada reported Tuesday. It was the largest quarterly deficit since 1959 and "a sharp rise" from the defi- cit during the second quarter oi this year. On an unadjusted basts, how- ever, the balance of payments showed a million surplus. The seasonally-adjusted fig- ures are designed to show the longer-term trend, by removing no'Tnal seasonal variations. The balance of payments shows the net result of inflows and outflows of money for im- ports, exports, purchase of services, investments, dividends and other financial transfers. II affects the international value of the Canadian dollar. Statistics Canada said a ma- jor factor in the deficit was a substantial drop in Canada's merchandise trade surplus.

The government statistics- gathering agency said the de- clining merchandise-trade sur- plus was due to "sluggishness" of Canadian goods in foreign markets and grealer-Uian-usual demand by a livelier Canadian economy for foreign goods. Other factors were automo- bile plant shutdowns In Canada and dock strikes on Ihe Cana- dian west coast and the United Kingdom. The merchandise trade plus of million was the re- sult of exports totalling J4.5 bil- lion and imports totalling billion. The figures for the sec- ond quarter were: exports billion, imports S4.94 billion. Non-merchandise trade, In- cluding such things as travel services, produced receipts of billion and payments of SJ.93 billion for a deficit of million. In the second quarter, receipts totalled billion and payments billion for i deficit of million. Adding the merchandise and non-merchandise balances to- gether gives the so-called cur- rent account balancei-a deficit of million during the third quarter, compared with mil- lion for the second quarter. The current account during the third quarter of 1971 showed a surplus of million. Capital movements, including investments, produced an inflow of million during this year's third quarter, down from million for the secoud quarter. The balance of payments is the sum of the current account and capital movements.
