McMAt-ION Editor & Publisher What began last year as an exhibition race with five runners this year has blossumed into a full-fledged road race attracting hundreds of runners from all over Southeast Louisiana. March 15'sSt Joseph Crusader and Smilin' Joe McCarthy's Irish Invitational 5-K Road Race and l-Mile Fun Run is this year co-sponsored by St, Joseph School Fair and the St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee The tradition began last year when Iongtime Ponchatoula and New Orleans sportsman Smilin' Joe McCarthy suggested an annual pre St. Patrick's Day Parade road race Last year he came up with a towering six foot. I0 inch trophy for the winner, who turned out to be William "Bill" O'Neil of New Orleans. This year McCarthy. a member of the local parade committee along with race organizer Wilk McKean. is putting up the largest trophy ever. a seven foot. six inch first place award for the city that fields the fastest overall runner, That trophy will stay in the city hall of the home city the winning runner repre- sents for one full year. before being moved to the city hall of the next winner's home town. In addition, Smilin' Joe McCarthy is working with merchants and pro- fessionals in Southeast Louisiana to provide sizable trophy awards for the 30 first place winners in the two March 15 races. St. Joseph School is providing T- shirts and second and third place medals for the winners. Smilin' Joe is currently on the Tulane Athletic Department staff, working with the intramural program. He is well- known to sports fans locally, especially those who remember the days of semi- pro ball here, when the Ponchatoula Athletics were a championship team and Smilin" Joe was one of its colorful players in 1932. A tireless backer o! numerous charities and a lifetime supporter of athletics. Smilin' Joe made his home here in the 1950"s before selling out to friend and contemporary, past-Poncha- toula Mayor Buddy Dufreche, and moving on to New Orleans. where his name is well known. His contacts among the New Orleans media, sports figures, running teams. and service organizations will be of value to the upcoming road race through the streets of Ponchatoula, since he is promoting the event every- where in New Orleans.
