Ken,

Try this option to "ps":

---
      -w      Use 132 columns to display information, instead of the 
default
              which is your window size.  If the -w option is specified 
more
              than once, ps will use as many columns as necessary without
              regard for your window size.
---

You could also try setting some sort of environment variable to change 
your "window size"- I believe 80 columns is the default terminal 
width...
