At least on the Unix version of R-0.63.2 the las = 1 argument to par
does work, although the spacing of the result is perhaps not optimal.

Try the following in your version and see what happens.
 R> data(women)
 R> names(women)
 [1] "height" "weight"
 R> plot(weight ~ height, data = women, las = 1)

This appears to be a case where the documentation has lagged a bit
behind the code.
