dc.description.abstract We have searched for evidence of $W\sp\prime \to e\nu$ and $Z\sp\prime \to ee$ in data collected with the DO detector at the Tevatron during the 1992-1993 $p\bar p$ collider run at $\sqrt{s}$ = 1.8 TeV. We set an upper limit at the 95% confidence level on the cross section times branching ratio for $W\sp\prime \to e\nu,$ assuming that the neutrino from $W\sp\prime$ decay is stable and has a mass significantly less than $m\sb{W\sp\prime},$ and an upper limit on $Z\sp\prime \to ee.$ We exclude the existence of a $W\sp\prime$ of mass less than 610 GeV and a $Z\sp\prime$ of mass less than 490 GeV at the 95% confidence level, assuming standard model couplings to quarks and leptons.
