      J.A. Sandham, representative of the Lincoln National Life Insurance Co., has been notified that he is to attend his company's regional convention at Green Lake, Wis., Jun. 24, 25 and 26. He is one of 175 of the company's 1500 salesmen who won the right to attend by the large volume of business they have produced the past year.

      Cass City lost one of its pioneer businessmen and civic leaders Monday when John A. Sandham, 87, died at Hills and Dales General Hospital.

      Mr. Sandham was active in the business and civic life of the community for over a half century. He was a familiar sight on country roads as he actively conducted his insurance business until he became ill about a month ago.
      He served for 15 years as a member and president of the Cass City School Board. He was a member of the village council for 25 years.
      Mr. Sandham was a member of the Cass City Rotary Club and served the organization so ably that he was honored at a special party given by fellow members in his honor. A moment of silence in his honor was observed by the club Tuesday.
      Mr. Sandham and his wife were room-size contributors to Hills and Dales General Hospital. Each "room gift" required a donation of at least $5,000.
      He was a life member of Tyler Lodge F&AM 317 and served as a director of the Cass City State Bank for 48 years.

      Surviving, besides his widow, are: three daughters, Mrs. Roy (Pauline) BRIGGS of St. Johns, Mrs. Raymond (Deloris) GREEN of Albion, and Mrs. A.E. (Johanna) VALLIER of Plymouth; a sister, Mrs. Mary HARTWICK of Detroit; five grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
