Scrolling in xterm

My xterm is version 4.0.1b(104). I have the scrollbar showing up on the left side
of my window. I am not able to interactively use the mouse to scroll back in the window.
A mouse click in the scroll bar will position the view in the scroll buffer. How can I
use the mouse button to move interactively through the scroll buffer (as in gnome-terminal).

I have looked at the Xresourses but nothing was obvious about the mouse key bindings.
Is this something more specific to the window manager or is isolated to the xresources file?

Thank you in advance.
