Ouch.  That's pretty ugly.  You can select a font using 'xfontsel', then
set it in ~/.Xresources with a line like this:

Emacs.font: -xos4-terminus-medium-r-normal-*-*-140-*-*-*-*-*-*

Choose any font you like for the above, but emacs will not like a
non-fixed width font, iirc.  You might need to run 
'xrdb -load ~/.Xresources' in your ~/.xsession.  Also, make sure you
disable 'make my apps pretend to look like KDE ones' in the KDE Control
Centre under Themes, IIRC.  It just looks crap.
