No, unfortunately there is no "hideLevel" command. Let me give you an
example of what I meant:

I would use 38 MC's before I would use 38 levels. Let's say that each of
these MC's contains a slide and some text. Within each of these MC's I would
include a frame that was empty and had a stop action and would label it
"park." When navigating from MC to MC, each button would have the following

On (Release)
Go to and Stop ("park")
Begin Tell Target ("/yourNextMC")
Go to and Play ("WhateverLabel")
End Tell Target
End On

This would send the current movie to the blank frame labeled park and then
call the next clip to be displayed.

Hope that made sense.
