If I understand your question right, you would like to label your
variable 'twomand' with the label 'DUMMY VARIABLE FOR FEDERAL...'. Is
this what you'd like to do?
If so type:
label var twomand "DUMMY VARIABLE FOR FEDERAL DEPUTIES THAT APPEAR
TWICE IN THE DATASET"

-codebook twomand- will now show the label of twomand.
