[R] How to test combined effects?

Thank you very much for the help!
I tried both glht() in multcomp and estimable() in gmodels, but
couldn't get them work as shown below. Basically I have trouble
specifying those continuous variables. Any suggestions?
Also it seems both glht() and estimable() would give multiple t
tests. Is there a way to obtain sort of partial F test?
> ModelFit<-lme(mct~ IQ*age+IQ*I(age^2)+IQ*I(age^3), MyData,
mDF denDF F-value p-value
(Intercept) 1 257 54393.04 <.0001
IQ 1 215 3.02 0.0839
age 1 257 46.06 <.0001
I(age^2) 1 257 8.80 0.0033
I(age^3) 1 257 21.30 <.0001
IQ:age 1 257 1.18 0.2776
IQ:I(age^2) 1 257 0.50 0.4798
IQ:I(age^3) 1 257 0.23 0.6284
> glht(ModelFit, linfct = c("IQ:age = 0", "IQ:I(age^2) = 0", "IQ:I
(age^3) = 0"))
Error in coefs(ex[]) :
cannot interpret expression 'I''age^2' as linear function

(age^3) = 0'))
Error in FUN(newX[, i], ...) :
`param' has no names and does not match number of coefficients of
