Sunday, April 19, 1925
Fair and warm

Dr. Philputt died this morning at 9:00. We were told as we went in to Sunday school. Services were conducted as usual but it was more like a funeral than Sunday meetings. The boys and I stayed for church. Dale’s first communion. Gilbert and the boys took a walk in the park after dinner but I didn’t get my work done till evening.

(Dr. Philputt was indeed a famous minister of the day. Here's some more info on him at this link.
We also learn from the article about him more about Central Christian Church. "The membership of the church is about seventeen hundred and the Sunday school is at present the largest in the city, having an average attendance of more than seven hundred." This was written in 1918.)
