As Woodrow Wilson finally announced that the USA would enter the war, New York continued to seethe with political and cultural activity. That winter de la Selva taught at Williams College and, through two of his students, he met their mother, Florence Schauffler, who would become an important friend and correspondent. He also undertook military training and wrote a series of often bellicose poems expressing his sense of joy at the prospect of fighting. At a huge pan-American event at the National Arts Club in February, de la Selva read a specially composed poem about how his dreams for continental co-operation were being undermined by the US harrowing of Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. In the audience, Theodore Roosevelt had to sit and listen. It was de la Selva’s most public triumph.
