xterm starts with LINES=24 s/b 25

Hi all - Happy Holidays.

Where will I find a default setting for xterm such that it starts with
80 columns and 25 rows/lines?  I couldn't find anything in 
/usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/Xterm on it.  I could set it up with the right
geometry in my window manager (IceWM) but there must be a better way,
right?  I put the following 
XTerm*Geometry 80x25
in my .Xdefaults and it works, but I would actually prefer not to use
Xdefaults b/c (well b/c I am lazy and dont feel like learning it, and it
just seems like another config file to get hazy in my memory over time).
So is there a system-wide way to set this, can I add the same entry to
the /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/XTerm file as I did to my .Xdefaults ?

Thank you for any help,
