Thanks. I apparenly had not saved customization or missed the relevant
lines in the resulting init file. Things now working in an emacs session
not using that init file and with the following stanza:

(custom-set-faces
  '(default ((t (:family "Courier 10 Pitch" :foundry "bitstream" \
            :slant normal :weight normal :height 122 :width normal))))
  '(highlight ((t (:background "wheat"))))
  '(region ((t (:background "wheat" :distant-foreground \
           "gtk_selection_fg_color"))))
)
