```Thanks, I left the "p" off.  I read the manually closely, but apparently
not closely enough--I missed the line under the "p" in -clp-.  Maybe it is
time for a new glasses prescription.

Sorry to bother everyone.  Thanks.

Sam

FYI I wrote the code below, using -cl- rather than -clp-:

twoway
function y1=norm(1.551317+.4782641*x), range(0 1) cl("solid")
|| function y2=norm(1.794013-.045931*x), range(0 1) cl("dash")
|| function y3=norm(-.8574661-.1397268*x), range(0 1) cl("longdash")
|| function y4=norm(-.6183398-.2016093*x), range(0 1) cl("shortdash")
||,
yscale(range (0 1))
ytitle("Paid Labor Force Participation Probability")
xtitle("1940")
title("Figure 2.7.5") ;

Thanks.
Sam
