st: multiple categories on one histogram

Colleagues,

I would like to graph the distribution of height for two populations
on a histogram.

I tried

hist(height), by(var)

But this yields 2 separate histograms.

Is is possible to plot the histograms for both var categories on the
same graph in different colors?

Thank you.

Mike
