Russian Bells Stolen - (SAN FRANCISCO) -- Three priceless bells donated to the Orthodox Holy Trinity Cathedral in San Francisco were stolen the weekend. The bells were donated by Russian Czar Alexander the Third. The cathedral's rector, Reverend Victor Sokolov is upset, saying the bells have survived the great earthquake and fire of 1906. They are part of a set of seven donated to the mission of the American-Russian Church in 1888.
