Outside the auditorium where the world's two most-powerful men will reveal Sunday what they have decided, a pair of women in yellow rain slickers assiduously and tenderly planted a new bed of white and purple asters. "These are for Mr. Gorbachev as greetings," one of the municipal workers explained to a passerby. "You mean for Mr. Gorbachev and for Mr. Bush," her companion corrected her.

Vice President George Bush once appeared "naked and unashamed" on the shores of the Baltic Sea during a 1983 visit to the capital of Finland. It was hardly scandalous, however, since Bush was in the buff only while he was sampling a traditional Finnish sauna, according to a document proudly displayed here. The diploma issued to VIP visitors such as Bush certified he was a "clean-living friend" who was duly "washed in all thoroughness by a lady of the bath."

When President Reagan stops in Finland en route to the summit meeting in Moscow, he can expect a warm welcome in this normally cold country that shares a border with the Soviet Union. Reagan, who is to arrive Thursday and spend four days here in Europe's northernmost capital, will meet with President Mauno Koivisto and Premier Harri Holkeri, who have had considerable direct contact with Soviet leaders. He is also scheduled to deliver a major speech.

On his way to Moscow, President Reagan came Wednesday to this small European capital, set in a scenic, lake-dotted region, for one overriding reason: It is, in the words of one top aide, "a place where you can go and do no heavy lifting." That supreme qualification--a low-pressure environment--is a central theme of the complex effort made by Administration officials to prepare the President for his impending fourth superpower summit and a capstone event in his foreign policy.
