I yhink you'd have to eliminate the user password altogether.

Thanks for your help. It put me on the right track for solving the problem.
As a help to others sharing my frustration, I offer this:
Once again, Apple could be more helpful in defining terms.
If you go to System Preferences>Users & Groups and click on your identity you will see a button that says "Change Password..."
Here is where the confusion sets in. I did not realise that there were two passwords: the Admin password and the User password. I did not want to change or remove the Admin password.
It would have been helpful if Apple had marked the button "Change User Password..."
So, that is what you have to change so that the New Password and Verify boxes are totally blank.
Ignore the warning and blaze on ahead and you will find that the Login screen no longer demands a password.
I hope this will be helpful...
