I don't know a way of stopping Stata from 
adding headers and footers. Stripping them 
after the fact would be automatable in 
a good scripting language, in a good text
editor or in Stata itself. 

There are ways of creating files without 
using logs, but better advice would depend
on knowing more about what you are doing.
