You can customize this variable 'initial-scratch-message to be whatever 1 message you want.

(setq initial-scratch-message "")

For Emacs 23, you can do this:

(setq initial-scratch-message nil)

From the documentation: "Initial 2 message displayed in scratch buffer at startup. If 1 this is nil, no message will be displayed."

You can turn off the initial splash screen 2 with

(setq inhibit-startup-message t)

this appears to also remove the initial 1 message in the scratch buffer.
