Syria and Saudi Arabia have agreed In principle with Egypt to form a rival All-Arab Defense Alliance.

West Germany's opposition Socialists announced yesterday they had obtained enough parliamentary .support to compel the Supreme Court to consider their suit challenging the constitutionality of the French-German a^rerrnent to Europeanize the disputed coal-rich valley. Adenauer, nowever, was report ed jubilant over the French Senate's action, which came after Faure had beaten back every attempt to delay or water down endorsement. Only Signature Needed Only the formality of President Rene Coty's signature remained to wind up French ratification. After four days of debate, the weary senators voted to: 1. Add West Germany and Italy to the old Brussels Treaty and use this new seven-power Western European Union to supervise West German rearmament—134-110; 2.
