[CentOS] Shell Question

So I list out some directories, and I redirect the output to a file
called "out".

I do it with:
   find . \( -type d ! -name . -prune \)' > out

I then go into "out" using my favorite editor and remove any
directories I don't want to search.

When I do a 
   find `cat out` -name 'something*'

I get an error on any directories with whitespace in them.  When I try
to place quotes around that name, it doesn't work, nor does putting a
backslash in front of the space help.

Any shell experts out there have any ideas?
