The boys have as their ideals: faith, loyalty, honesty, and courage. In living up to these ideals, they have become one of the most prominent organizations of the campus. 50 lllllHllNli llHll COACH COACH Miss Stennis Mr. Everett The 'Debating team, composed of two sophomore girls and two freshman boys, represented the college well this year in the North District tournament held at Delta State Teachers' College, Cleveland. In spite of obvious handi- caps, the team lost only by a small margin to last year's state champion, Raymond. Raymond won three out of four debates, losing only to Sunflower's negative. Sunflower also won three out of four losing to Raymond's negative, but due to individual percentage scoring the totals were in Raymond's favor. The creditable showing of the team was due to a great extent to the untiring efforts of Miss Stennis and Miss Allen. NEGATIVE AFFIRMATIVE Sybil Wright Sue Collins E. L.

A little unusual is the fact that the orchestra has been directed this year by an outstanding student musician, Charles Pruitt. Through cooperation and tireless effort, the Southerners have become known throughout the Delta and because of their helpful services, have been called upon numerous times by the various civic organizations in this part of the state.

There have been two courses of flight training this yearg one having been started in October of l94O, the other in February of l94l. The Spring Class was divided into two sections. The primary course has a quota of thirty students and is instructed by Flight Instructors Abide, Draper, and Lindsey. The Advanced unit has a quota of ten and the instructor is R. W. Gunn. Only two colleges offer this advanced course, the other college being Ole Miss. Of singular interest is the fact that an S. J.

He came here after finishing an outstanding career in athletics at Ole Miss. His senior year there, Coach "Rab" was awarded the Norris Trophy as the most valu- able player on the team. He was also selected as the outstanding athlete of the school by lettering in football, track, and baseball. The l94O season wasn't as successful as previous years through the lack of experienced players. However, Coach "Rab" did an excel- lent job of coaching an almost entirely fresh- men ball club. The team won five games, lost four and tied one. With the freshman material on hand and the new ones yet to come, everything points to a successful l94l season. COACH HARRIS Assistant Coach Harris, better known as Prof. Harris, has been line coach at S. J. C. for three years. Coach Harris is a former graduate and athlete of this institution. After finishing his degree in Chemistry at Ole Miss, he returned here to teach and render his ser- vices as Assistant Coach. As a result of his excellent coaching, several S, J. C. linemen have received berths on the All-State teams in the last few years. SAINT" ROTH, Captain lllllllll Trojans ---- 20 Arkansas A. 6 lvl. O This game opened our l94O season with a bang. The team looked promising, but it lacked blocking, tackling, and timing of plays. Trojans ---- O Decatur ---- 27 ln this game, weight and speed proved too much for the lighter Trojans, but they kept the S. J, C. spirit in the face of defeat. Trojans ---- l2 Raymond - - - 6 The Trojans came to life in this game and outplayed the flashy Raymond boys. Blocking and tackling was superior all during the game. Trojans ---- 7 Arkansas State - 7 A tie game when S. J. C. should have emerged victor. Sunflower was completely outplayed by a much weaker team. Trojans ---- l 3 Summitt ---- O Summitt simply couldn't stop the powerful drives put on by the Trojans.

Trojans ---- 6 Go-Lin ---- O An undefeated, untied team went down before the Tro- jans in this game. Both teams played superb defensive ball. Trojans ---- 6 Senatobia - - - 26 This turned out to be the upset of the year. Senatobia, a seemingly weak team in the early season, rose to great strength in the closing games of the year. Trojans ---- l 5 Southwestern Frosh I4 This was the most thrilling game of the year. Sun- flower came from behind in the last few seconds of the game to score the winning touchdown. Trojans ---- i3 Goodman - - - 26 The Trojans took an early lead, but lack of reserve sub- stitutes turned victory into defeat in the closing game of the 1940 season.

C. Johnson, Tackleg Fred Dugger, Back, Habeeb Mansour, Tackleg and Joe Saia, Guard. Troy Ingram, End, and William Gordon, Guard, who also enlisted, are pictured as they appeared in the Retrospect of l94O. We feel that the school's and the team's loss of these fine boys is Uncle Sam's gain. Spring football began February lOth with a group of new material that came in at mid-term. The boys are working hard to get that much needed experience before Fall rolls around. A tough schedule looks them in the face and they seem very much determined to make the following season a successful one.

T. lVlcClenahan has completed his fifth suc- cessful year as head coach here at Sunflower Junior College having taken over at the departure of Coach A. D. Dickson in l937. Although this season was not quite as successful as those of the past few years, we feel Coach "Mac" is due a lot of credit for taking a team of boys from which three main string players were missing and putting out a fine team. Ever on the lookout for new material, Coach "Mac" always presents S. J. C. each year with teams well worth boosting and we are proud to call him "our Coach Mac." 91 S.

After defeating the Trojans the Scooba boys went on to the finals and lost to Ellisville 5l-50. M. V. C. TOURNAMENT S. J. C. 89 - - Alabama Teachers 34 S. J. C. 65 ---- - Bethal 59 S. J.

C. stars which made the game all the more interesting. Everything in this game pointed to a successful season. BOB BOYD S. J. C. ------ 34 All American Red Heads ---- 26 LAMAR WILLIAMS This game turned out to be a novelty rather than an important battle. The boys playing a professional girls' team by boys rules drew a large crowd. Coach "Mac" played his second string most of the game, so don't judge too much by the score. S. J. C. ------ 53-40 Goodman ----- 42-60 The first encounter with Goodman ended with a victory for S. J. C. But the next night Goodman came back with a strong offense that proved too great for our boys. S. J. C. ------ 32-42 Ellisville ------ 27-37 Ellisville produced the fastest team ever seen on the Sunflower court, but they lacked the calmness and accurate ball handling of S. J. C, A victory for Sunflower in both games. S. J. C. ------ 54 Raymond - - 39 S. J. C. ------ 39 Co-Lin - - 38 A victorious week-end for the Trojans. S. J.

The Trojanettes were weakened by the loss of Odessa Cooper who was injured in the semi-final game of the tournament. This ended a successful season for the girls allowing only the Goodman team to defeat them each time by one or two points. SEASON GAMES S. J. C. ------------ 25 Norwood Flyers --------- 24 The first game of the season proved to be the most exciting of the year. A close, hard-fought game, with the Trojanettes emerging victor in the last few seconds, thrilled everyone. The Norwood Flyers fea- tured five All-American players which were supposed to be some of the outstanding players of the United Statesg nevertheless the Trojanettes proved too much for this professional team. S. J. C. ------ 24-33 Goodman ------ 25-34 MILDRED SCRUGGS One point difference in both games-that is what I call close playing. EDITH FRAZIER The Goodman girls always seemed to edge out in the last few minutes of the games. Both games were very exciting and kept the fans on their feet most of the time. S. J. C. ------ 44-40 Ellisville ------ 34-31 Two games easily won by our S. J. C. girls. lt takes points to win a game so our guards just wouldn't let these Ellisville girls score. S. J. C. ------ 5l-35 Senatobia ------ 28--23 The Trojanettes easily won thees two games. Excellent team-work and well-aimed shots were outstanding throughout both games. Brown scored 27 points. Scruggs scored 28 points and Grisham scored 23. S. J. C. ------ 4l-53 Ellisville ------ 29-36 More victories for S. J. C. Through the excellent guarding of Cooper, Frazier and Woods, who were later assisted by Whitfield, the Ellisville girls were allowed very few shots. Very interesting games to watch although the score gave easy victory to S. J. C. S. J. C. ------ 46--45 Decatur ------- 27-Z2 Decatur's slow and poorly coached team could not match the speed and cooperation of the Sunflower girls. Both games were easily won on the Decatur floor.

IIHSIIIIIIHII The S. A. H. S. basketball team had this year one of the most successful teams in its history. Under the able leadership of Coach Thigpen, whose training and high spirits were a definite factor in their success, they were able to win an average of three out of four games and to take away the Iaurels of a major Delta tournament.

Northcutt, all-state pitcher, Cochran, all-state shortstop, and Nash, all-state third base. McDowell, Vernamonti, Patterson, Steele, Martin and Litton are gone through graduation. Vandevender and Bob Boyd are the only returning letter men. Prospects are good though in such players as Roth, pitcher, Thibault, outfield, Grezatfi, outfield, Harbour, pitcher, Ragland, first base, George Coons, second base, Grantham, third base, Lang, pitcher, Jacks, pitcher, Turner, catcher, Martin, outfield, Brewer, outfield, Hill, shortstop, Johnston, catcher. The Trojans were barely edged out ot the state championship last year. They lost only two games last year, both by one score, so the Trojans are out to win the championship this year. 96 llNNlS WW' EDITH FRAZIER ROBERT HARVEY IVIILDRED SCRUC-C-S TENNIS-l94l I The l94l tennis team has served excellent material and should show a winning team in both boys and girls. Sunflower is fortunate in having Robert Harvey, the l94O state high school tennis champion, who is expected to take the same crown in the Junior College llecsague. Joe Hunter, Lamar Carithers, Hilton Abernathy, Neil Pressley and Edward Miller will furnish some excellent material for the 4l team. The girls team has Edith Frazier, Mildred Scruggs and Rae Fried left over from last year's team and with some of the freshmen girls, they should have a better than average team. , , , , , , W W -W ,... , . , ey gig? , -Y .Mr W v if My 1 '-" E "j.Z:j.. hw Back Row: Robert Harvey, Virginia Vail, Grace Webber, Neil Pressley Front Row: Edith Frazier, Mildred Scruggs. 97 The outlook for the l94l track team should be a bright one. Such sprint men as Roth and Sam Grantham should take care of lOO-220 and 440 yard dashes. Joe Hunter, a veteran high hurdler, should show up well, with Jimmie Boozer, a new man, striding over the low hurdles. Bubber Jackson, high-flying pole vaulter of the past season is still on hand to get his share of the honors. COACH RAB RODGERS The loss of some track men such as Frank Perry, sprint man, Tisdell and Bickerstaff, distance runners will hurt the team but new faces in the fresh- man squad such as Doyle Nail, the Eubanks brothers, Sam Stafford, and others should strengthen the team greatly. This year's State Junior College Field Meet will be held here at Moor- In g,"'r head and every effort will be made to take the much-envied crown. The L I", J! boys are working hard to get in shape for this coming event. 'sf' . - li T: 1 SAM STAFFORD DOYLE NAIL KENNETH FORD MAX JUCHIE X s I Back Row: E. Thibault, T. Ford, A. Williams, R.
