[edit]

NEW YORK (AP) — A petite and red haired junior, staging a one-girl spoofing revolt against the dormitory regulations at Radcliffe College, has spent a "honeymoon" at the hotel Americana with a British television and movie star —a walking and talking robot.

The 20-year-old rebel and her "husband" registered for a suite as Miss 2000 and A. Dalek. The girl doesn't want to reveal her name because she fears a flood of phone calls.

She calls her robot husband Dalek and he calls her "Earthling."

It doesn't really matter that he is starring in a movie, "Dr. Who and the Daleks," from television series that has been running in England for about two years and that this was a publicity stunt.

What matters is that Radcliffe College, a college for women in Cambridge. Mass., won't allow any unmarried student to live outside the dormitories.

Miss 2000 thinks it's ridiculous that a serious minded 20-year-old girl can't live in an apartment of her own.

Last month, she ran an ad in the Harvard Crimson asking somebody to agree to marry her for one year so that she could live outside the dorms. The ad asked the men to "contact Crimson Box 2000."

It seems that Dalek—or his publicity agent—was one of 250 men who wrote letters to Miss 2000.

So she got hitched to Dalek—a cone shaped, 5-foot-6 robot dressed in silver and red, with one eye-scanner. a radiation antenna, a flamethrower and red bulbs in his head that light up when he speaks.
