How to Define Title Before Plotting?

The code below works well:
hax = axes;
x = linspace(0,3);
y1 = sin(5*x);
plot(hax,x,y1)
hax.Title.String = 'TITLE'; %titling after plotting
But, is there any way to define the title before plotting? (and if it's not possible why?) The code below does NOT draw the title:
hax = axes;
x = linspace(0,3);
hax.Title.String = 'TITLE'; % titling before plotting (doesn't work)
y1 = sin(5*x);
plot(hax,x,y1)

Because plot is a high level command and will clear a lot of things, unlike the line function (which is what plot is calling anyway). Using hold will work:
hax = axes;
x = linspace(0,3);
hax.Title.String = 'TITLE'; % titling before plotting (doesn't work)
hold(hax,'on')
y1 = sin(5*x);
plot(hax,x,y1)
