Orion Whitaker had a problem getting the variable label
as a graph title.
I didn't quite understand Orion's syntax, but this one works:

sysuse auto , clear
foreach v of varlist mpg {
  local lbl : variable label mpg
  graph box `v' , title(" `lbl' ")
}

In Orion's display example there was an uneven number of 
double quotes, so that could hardly have worked.
