It seems that the default setting are there in the /etc/login.defs. I changed the umask value in this file to 066.
However I find that this change has effect when I am creating user directly by giving command "useradd" in the terminal. But if I create the user through "System->Administration->Users and Groups", there is still the same permissions. I even restarted the computer. Since this graphical tool uses system-config-users, I tried to check its configuration files, but alas, no use.
How can we make system-config-users fall in line ?
