Open OptionInspector (from Format menu or using shortcut key). In its 
first field, select either Selected Notebook or Global Preferences, 
depending on how broadly you want to apply this.

In the Search field, search for ShowCellLabel. You'll get that entry, 
which you can also navigate to manually at

   Cell Options > Cell Labels

Now uncheck the item, so that the option's value now reads False instead 
of True.

If you do this for Global Preferences, be aware that it will affect 
_all_ notebooks -- including those opened in the Documentation Center. 
That's something you may not want.

So another way is to cook up a modification of the style sheet and use 
that one whenever you want a notebook without the In and Out labels. See 
other posts in this list about modifying style sheets.
