This solution will always make your hydrogen atoms white.
if you need to do this only once you can use select-> select From 
String, type H* in the Atom type in and then click on Add
This will select all hydrogen atoms
The color->Choose Color, check the line, ot any other geometry you want 
to re-color and click on the white button in the color chooser.
