Two students who succumbed to the lure of Hollywood, resigned from the University and set out for the film city last week reached the outskirts of Washington according to word received here.
The pair Harry McN. Brown '41, a dropped Freshman, and Theodore Amussen of Brookline who resigned from last year's Freshman class in the middle of the year, left Cambridge on Tuesday, November 16. The trailer in which they are to live until they find better quarters in Hollywood is equipped with running water, two double beds, a library and a radio-phonograph.
Both Belonged to Advocate
Writing rather than acting is the line which they both intend to follow both having belonged to the Advocate here. Brown won the Young Poet's Prize given by Poetry Magazine in 1935, and last year received the Garrison poetry prize here. A play in verse by him was considered by the Dramatic Club for its Fall production. Amussen wrote sonnets which were published in the Advocate.
Their route is to Chicago and then down through the Southwest into Mexico and up into California time being no object.
