dat <- rnorm(100)
hist(dat, ylab = "Count", cex.main = 0.7, xlab = "Something else")

for example.

But this is all R 101 and you could have found this by reading the "An
Introduction to R" manual that comes with your R installation or can be
found at the R website (www.r-project.org Manuals section of menu), and
by reading the help for ?hist and ?par (for cex.main).
