$ echo '(setq column-number-mode t)' >>~/.emacs

If you prefer menu-based customization, select Options > Show/Hide > Column Numbers, then Options > Save Options. (This might vary depending on Emacs version.)

I'm not into the menu-bar, if you are't either you can do M-x customize-variable then put in column-number-mode then you can toggle the mode on or off. –  Tim Bielawa Mar 10 '11 at 1:12
