Lent, the period of 45 weekdays leading to Easter, is observed variously in Christian churches by fasting and penitence to commemorate Jesus's last ing in the wilderness. "Charity rids us of our selfishness,"the pope said in the message. "It breaks down the walls of our isolation, it opens our eyes to our neighbor, to those more distant from us and to the whole of humanity."

Philippines," Reagan told reporters two-party system" he said emen»i»rf intensive consultations wltl By MICHAEL PUTZEL AP White House Correspondent WASHINGTON (AP) - President Reagan is walking a tightrope between opposing sides in the Philippine presidential election, saying he is disturbed by reports of voting fraud and violence but mindful of U.S. strategic interest in maintaining its military bases on the islands. In a written statement after hearing his observers report on the irregularities they had witnessed in the still-undecided race, Reagan said, "It is a disturbing fact that the election has been flawed by reports of fraud, which we take seriously, and by violence." But he said, "We need to remind ourselves that this is a Philippine election, not an American election." And he told a news conference Tuesday night, "One can't minimize the importance" of U.S. Navy and Air Force bases on the Pacific islands. "I don't know of any that's more important than the bases on the Philippines," Reagan told reporters in a nationally broadcast news conference. He noted that his administration won't take sides in the bitterly contested race between incumbent President Ferdinand Marcos and challenger Corazon Aquino. "We're neutral, and we then hope to have the same relationship with the people of the Philippines that we've had all these years," Reagan said. Reagan said he would send veteran diplomatic troubleshooter Philip Habib to Manila to "help nurture the hopes and possibilities of democracy." White House officials have concluded privately that Marcos, who controls the National Assembly that will declare the winner, will emerge victorious. Efforts already are under way to persuade Mrs. Aquino not to take her campaign into the streets, as she has promised, and Reagan has pledged to try to nurture the "strong two-party system" he said emerged from the election campaign. On other matters at the news conference, Reagan, when asked about the release earlier in the day of Soviet dissident Anatoly Sh- charansky, said he "talked at great length about human rights" with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev at their summit last November. Reagan said he thought there had been an increase in such emigrations since then, and added, "I hope that this is a beginning sign of what's going to take place." Regarding this week's change of government in Haiti, the president sajd the only U.S. involvement in the downfall of President-for-Life Jean Claude Duvalier was in "providing an airplane" to fly him into exile in France. He said Duvalier did not seek advice about his departure, and the United States offered none. U.S. officials have acknowledged, however, that they were involved in McQueeney project A PLAYGROUND PROJECT committee of parents, Parent-Teacher Association members, community leaders, McQueeney faculty and students is planning the expansion and improvement of the play area at McQueeney Elementary School. Phase I of the project includes planting trees, buijding a cement outdoor play surface, swing sets, a climbing gym and fort, and committee members were out Saturday to work on the project. The McQueeney PTA has endorsed it by donating approximately $2,000. Target completion date is March 8. (Staff photo) intensive consultations with Duvalier and the new regime to help smooth the way for a bloodless transfer of power. ' On other subjects, the president warmly praised Vice President George Bush, who is preparing a bid for the 1988 GOP presidential nomination, saying Bush has been "heart and soul in support of everything that we're trying to do, and I am convinced of his sincerity i" Insisting he had not decided what action to take on proposals within the administration for changes in affirmative action policy, Reagan said he is "trying to correct" a system that makes it easy for the bureaucracy to enforce racial quotas, rather than pursue specified numerical goals and timetables. He also made a pitch for his 1987 budget, and took note of critics who say it is "DOA — dead on arrival." He said those critics only want a tax increase to reduce deficits — and said any such increase would be "VGA — vetoed on arrival." Shuttle probe targets seals WASHINGTON (AP) — NASA engineers have been concerned about the performance of rubber sealing rings on the space shuttle's rocket boosters for more than a year, but concluded that while the seals needed to be improved, they were "safe and adequate" for flight, space agency officials said. At a news conference today, Lawrence Mulloy, head of the solid booster program at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama, said tests have shown the seals operating properly at lower temperatures. He said the day before the Challenger launch NASA and engineers from the rocket booster's manufacturer, Morton-Thiokol, agreed the launch should proceed after concluding that even if the primary seals were adversely affected the secondary seals would hold.
