st: graphs with dates question...

I want to make a graph with the command:

graph bar (mean) Var1, over (Quarter)

where Quarter is formatted as 
%tq. This produces a graph with the number corresponding to the quarter 
on the x-axis, rather than the actual quarter (e.g. '0' instead of 
'1960q1'). How can I get the quarter to show up rather than the 
corresponding number?

I'd also like only, say, one quarter a year to be labelled on the x-axis, otherwise there isn't enough room for all the text to fit. I've trawled through the documentation for this, but 
haven't found anything useful...
