A quick look into would yield the desired result :-)

   Text Settings
       The FAM string sets the default font family.  If this string is
       undefined at initialization, it is set to Times.

       The point size, vertical spacing, and inter-paragraph spacing
       for footnotes are controlled by the num- ber registers FPS,
       FVS, and FPD; at initialization these are set to \n(PS-2,
       \n[FPS]+2, and \n(PD/2, respectively.  If any of these
       registers are defined before initialization, the initialization
       macro does not change them.

       The hyphenation flags (as set by the hy request) are set from
       the HY register; the default is 14.

       Improved accent marks (as originally defined in Berkeley's ms
       version) are available by specifying the AM macro at the
       beginning of your document.  You can place an accent over most
       characters by specify- ing the string defining the accent
       directly after the character.  For example, n\*~ produces an n
       with a tilde over it.
