Random Number Generation in JAVA

I am a newbie (to this forum and to programming).  The following is going to be part of a larger program.  I suspect this will be an easy one for the experts in this forum.  I am trying to create a Java program which will generate and print out random numbers.  I can generate a different random number every time I run it, but it repeats the random number (however many times I have specified in the while loop).

 import java.io.*;

import java.util.*;

public class RandNumber {

      public RandNumber () {}

      public static void main (String args [])
      {
          int RollIt = ScanRoll();

          RandNumber Roll = new RandNumber ();

          int count = 0;

          while (count < 10)
          {
            Roll.ScanRoll();
            System.out.println(RollIt);
            count ++;

          }//end while loop

      }//end of main

      public static int ScanRoll()
      {
          int TheRoll;
          TheRoll = 1 + (int)(Math.random() * 40);

          return TheRoll;

      }//end ScanRoll

}//end of RandNumber

The output:
