st: Testing interaction terms when using factor variables

I am looking for a shorthand notation when testing multiple interaction terms at once.

use "";, clear

quietly logit tenure i.female year c.year#c.year select articles prestige i.female#(c.year c.year#c.year c.articles c.prestige)

test 1.female#c.year 1.female#c.year#c.year 1.female#c.articles 1.female#c.prestige

test  1.female#(c.year c.year#c.year c.articles c.prestige)

The first test command, where I spell out each interaction separately, works fine. But, with the second test command, I get

invalid varname

You would think there would be some sort of shorthand way of doing this, but if so I can't figure out what it is.
