The paper reports the observations of 18 occultation events involving 11 members of the Praesepe cluster using three different telescopes (1.58 and 0.4 m, Oak Ridge Observatory; 0.6 m, Wallace Observatory) during the April 3, 1982 (UT) lunar passage. One object, KW 284 (HD 73712), was confirmed to be a relatively wide double, and another, KW 212 (HD 73598), a previously discovered occultation binary (Peterson and White 1984), was recovered.
