[texhax] Mathematics subject classification numbers question

This has got to be something that's simple to do, but I have spent
many hours trying to track down exactly how, so far without success.
I am preparing a paper for the Illinois Journal of Mathematics. It
instructs authors to include mathematics subject classification
numbers ``in the usual format.'' The IJM has a sample .tex file for
an actual paper. It is in \documentclass{amsart}, which uses the
command \subjclass{} for the msc numbers. This makes the argument
appear in an unnumbered, unmarked footnote at the bottom of page 1.
So apparently that's the ``usual format'' for the subject
classification numbers.
But my paper is in \documentclass{article} for which there is no
\subjclass{} command (at least, I got an ``undefined control
sequence'' error when I tried it). I have tried \footnote{}, but that
makes a numbered footnote. I have also tried \thanks{} within
\title{} or \author{}. That also puts a footnote where I want it, but
marks it (and the title or author's name) with an asterisk. So how do
I get an unmarked, unnumbered footnote for the msc numbers at the
bottom of page 1?
Yes, I could simply change the .tex file for my paper to
\documentclass{amsart}. But if I do THAT, it will wreak havoc with
line breaks in the many inline math mode expressions that appear
throughout the text. And my paper is over 30 pages long...
TIA, KF
