Thanks all for help. The following works as it should.

(setq default-frame-alist
      '((menu-bar-lines . 1)
        (left-fringe)
        (right-fringe)
        (tool-bar-lines . 0)
        (width . 75)
        (height . 50)
        ))

(setq initial-frame-alist '((width . 100) (height . 50)))

for future reference of later readers, type Ctrl+h v then initial-
frame-alist will give you good doc.
