Thanks.  I think .Xresources is correct because
I got red to work for select, but yellow didn't
work for either forground or background.  I did
find the xterm man page listing of resources, so
I should be able to figure it out.  Eventually :-)

Wierdly, the bug of the work screens vanishing
no longer happens now that I've got a .Xresources
and .Xdefaults files.  If that's all it takes,
it's an easy fix!
