Something sneaky is going on in sneakytown. At least that’s what Arnold Schwarzenegger’s future father-in-law and head of the Peace Corps, Sargent Shriver, informs President Kennedy in this episode’s phone call from April 2, 1963.
JFK established the Peace Corps as one of his highlights of his New Frontier program. The idea was that young and idealistic Americans would travel around the world, helping out upcoming economies and cultures with good old fashioned American knowhow and - at the same time - spreading a little of those wholesome American vibes at the height of the Cold War.
