I would like to label plots with the variables -label- using extended
functions in a 'foreach' loop.

Somehow this code does not give a title to the graph:

   foreach v of varlist age {
      display "`v'"
      graph box `v' , title(" ` : variable label `v' ' ")
      //  that's  dq lsq : variable label rlq v rsq rsq dq
      // as in dq: double quote   lsq:  left single quote 
      } 

I'm perplexed as I tried to 'mirror' code that worked for 'display',
namely
   display " `var' "  _col(20)  "`" type `var''"

Suggestions?
