efforts, should better understand women’s
James Ford, associate professor of English
and president-elect of the Academic Senate,
expressed disappointment with Moeser’s atti
tude concerning die treatment of women athletes.
Fond said poor treatment of women at UNL
was brought into the spotlight last year during
die Lawrence Phillips incident, which Ford said
the university handled poorly.
Phillips, a former Comhusker running back,
faced misdemeanor assault and trespassing
charges stemming from an incident last year in
which he broke into teammate Scott Frost’s
apartment and assaulted his ex-girlfriend, Kate
McEwen. Phillips pleaded no contest to the
charges last year and settled a civil lawsuit out

Student creates fragrance line, image for both sexes

By Erin Schulte
It’s a part-tune business most teen-agers
don’t go poking their noses into.
The fragrance industry comes out with bil
lions of bottles of perfume and cologne every
year, and even celebrities like Cher have failed
at attempts to market their own lines.
But Michael Malcom, a UNL freshman, is
convinced his concoction, Loqu&tion (pro
nounced ’location’’), will be one fragrance that
Starting a fragrance line requires a lot more
thought and money than starting up something
like a lemonade stand. But Malcom, a market
ing major from McCook, has beenobsessed with
creating his own fragrance for years- And last
year, he started pursuing it as a business, he said.
I’m fascinated with the industry,” Malcom
said. “When I first put my nose into it, I knew
nothing. I just had the idea of having my own
fragrance in my head.”
It wasn’t just about creating a new scent, he
said. >• • ,;:g
