Use mode4350. Putting the following lines in your _emacs file is pretty
handy. (Thanks to Eli Zaretskii, of course.)

;; Work in 80x50 screen size, but switch back to 80x25
;; before exiting and when suspending Emacs.


(defun my-exit-stuff ()
  "My own exit routine.  Currently just switches back to the 25x80 mode."

(add-hook 'kill-emacs-hook 'my-exit-stuff)
(add-hook 'suspend-hook 'mode25)
(add-hook 'suspend-resume-hook 'mode4350)
