plot(1,1, xlab=expression(beta^"`"*X), ylab=expression(Y*"|"*X 
+beta^"`"*X) )

(Unfortunately the prime on the y lab is noe on the printed page in my  
device ( mac). so this hack seems to work better)

plot(1,1, xlab=expression(beta^"'"*X),  
ylab=expression(over(phantom(""), Y*"|"*X+beta^"'"*X) ))
