for 954,110 shares had either not been granted or had not been so redeemed by
February 28, 2002. Therefore, the undersigned agent for service hereby
deregisters the following amount of securities registered on the aforesaid
Registration Statement:

         Shares of the Common Stock of             954,110 shares
         The Procter & Gamble Company

This leaves 45,890 shares of the Common Stock of The Procter & Gamble Company
currently registered under Registration Statement, Form S-8, No. 333-14391.

In accordance with Rule 478(a)(4), as agent for service I have signed this
