Thanks for your response.

But if I give this command in the black window (on the remote machine)
I get
[tim at althea ~]$ xterm -display :0 -bg black -fg white 
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

xterm Xt error: Can't open display: :0
xterm:  DISPLAY is not set

Adding "-display :0 -bg black -fg white" to Terminal options
does not seem to have any effect, nor does "-bg black -fg white".
