district money to the funds as follows:
   (a) To the general obligation bond fund, that portion of the money
received from the collection of assessments or from the sale of
property for delinquent assessments which bears the same proportion
to the total amount received from the collection of assessments or
from the sale of property for delinquent assessments as that portion
of the estimate of the board on which the assessment was based which

interest thereon bears to the whole amount of the estimate.
   (b) To the general fund, the balance of all money received.



35903.  The money placed in the general obligation bond fund shall
