We describe a search for a Minimal Supergravity (mSUGRA) signature in Run 1 data taken by the DO detector at the Fermilab Tevatron from 1995--1996. The total data luminosity is 92.7 pb-1. The data were examined for events with a single electron, four or more jets and large missing transverse energy. The major backgrounds are from W+jets, QCD, tt[macron], and WW events. We observed no excess of events in our data. Based on the data and the expected signal rate we obtain new limits on new physics in terms of mSUGRA model parameters.
