Abstract: We present a study of 649 \pm 35 e+e-> ccbar events produced atsqrt{s}~10.6 GeV containing both a Lambda c baryon and a Lambda c antibaryon.The number observed is roughly four times that expected if the leading charmedhadron types are uncorrelated, confirming an observation by the CLEOCollaboration. We find a 2-jet topology in these events but very few additionalbaryons, demonstrating that the primary c and cbar are predominantly containedin a correlated baryon-antibaryon system. In addition to the charmed baryons weobserve on average 2.6 \pm 0.2 charged intermediate mesons, predominantlypions, carrying 65% of the remaining energy.
