One way would be use the - generate([newvarx] newvary)- option save the
results and then graph them yourself.

Or, copy -locpoly- to your personal directory (such as, c:\ado\personal\) as
-locpoly2-, add the line

			`options'			///

after line 162, so that lines 155 to 163 read:

		(line `yhat' `xgrid',			///
			sort				///
			pstyle(p1)			///
			`titles'			///
			ytitle(`"`yttl'"')	///		
			xtitle(`"`xttl'"') 	///	
			`rlopts'			///
			`twopts'			///
			`options'			///


And save the file.

Now this will work:

sysuse auto,clear
locpoly2 mpg gear,  ylabel(10(5)45) xlabel(2(.25)4)    /// 
ytitle("Probability of changing to another well") /// 
xtitle("Arsenic in baseline well, micrograms per liter") ///
title("Non-parametric estimate of the response to arsenic" "concentrations
in well water" )  /// 
subtitle("")
