The short answer: use drop1().

The long(er) answer: think harder about what question(s) you want answered
(i.e., what hypotheses you really want to test, and test only those).  The
model hierarchy says that a model should not have an interaction term
involving a factor whose main effect is not present in the model.  Seen in
this light, the hypothesis you're trying to test involves a non-sensical
