I suppress the In[] Out[] in all my notebooks this way.

Bring up the Options Inspector with ctrl-shift-O (the letter O)

The pull-down at the top probably has Selection in it, choose either 
Global Preferences if you want this to be for all notebooks, or Selected 
Notebook for just the current one. I did Global.

Go to Cell Options -> Cell Labels and set ShowCellLabel to False

If you choose Global Preferences, this will apply to all notebooks that 
you open up whether previously done or generated in the future. Now, if 
you decide later that you don't like it, you can always change back.

I am not sure about some of the posts that warn about "dangers", e.g. 
preserving a record of the order in which commands are executed. If you 
just put them in in the correct order this is not a problem, and 
untangling a misordered set would seem to be difficult under any 
circumstances. I think the labels are ugly and a distraction. But that 
is me.
