Setup a vector with the shapes and the colors you want that are the
same length as the number of levels in Age:
> x <- read.table('clipboard', header=TRUE)
> x
y x Age
1 30 0.0323 O
2 24 0.0389 Y
3 158 0.0580 Y
4 120 0.0581 O
5 100 0.0471 Y
6 102 0.0615 Y
7 160 0.0546 O
> shapes <- c(16,17)
> colors <- c('red', 'green')
> plot(x$x, x$y, pch=shapes[x$Age], col=colors[x$Age])
