SHARE BUSH ASSETS PUT AT $2,352,500

President Bush's personal worth is valued at $2,352,500, most of it in a blind trust, and he has liabilities of just $49,000, the White House says.

In addition to the blind trust, Bush's principal asset is his seaside home in Kennebunkport, Maine, which he valued at $892,000, according to disclosure forms released Tuesday. However, other estimates have put the value of the oceanside compound at more than $3 million.Vice President Dan Quayle and his wife, Marilyn, reported assets ranging from at least $691,004 to $1,045,000 or more. The Quayles' tax return, released last month, showed interest and dividend income of $16,430.

Regulations permit federal officials to list assets and liabilities in ranges rather than precise dollars.

The disclosure forms showed that both the Bushes and the Quayles collected more than $20,000 in personal gifts ranging from cowboy boots to evening bags to baseball cards.

They must publicly disclose any gifts from a single source valued at more than $100.

Spokesmen for Bush and Quayle said many of the gifts were given away to family and friends.
