You can set the following X resource.  

  !********************************************************
  !This is the font used for the menus etc. in ACEDB, image
  !********************************************************
  GraphPackage*font:              -*-helvetica-bold-r-normal-*-14-*

The font listed here is bigger and bolder than normal.  We do this by
adding it to our .Xdefaults file, which gets applied via:

	xrdb -merge $HOME/.Xdefaults

during our X startup process.  There are other, somewhat
system-dependent, ways of doing it.  Ask you local system person/guru.
