alias not passed to xterm

My aliases do not seem to be passed correctly to xterm I am using OLVWM. 
The following alias is in my .alias file "alias xboard='xboard -size small'
This does not work from xterm, but it does work if I execute it through a 
BASH box. This is true even though env in the xterm shows that bash is 
the shell.  Also the commmand  "type -all xboard" does not return the alias 
in xterm, nor on the consol ( not in windows ). It only shows both the 
original command and the alias when I am in the BASH shell window.
Since I assumed that .alias was global.  I am confused by this.  Any 
insights are appreciated.  Thank you
