09 28       The current issue of the Saturday Evening Post contains an advertisement by the Andrews-Alderfer Co. of Akron, Ohio, which features "Fabricushon," a rubber and fiber product which was the brainchild of L. M. Bickett of the Bickett Rubber Co. of Watertown.  Mr. Bickett coined the name for it some years ago and his concern has been making a product under that name.  Some time ago he sold the name to the Akron concern for $6,750 and the company is now turning out its products under that name.  The Bickett Company is also making a new shredded fiber and rubber cushion which is sold under the name of Pedicushion.  That, too, is a name coined by Mr. Bickett.
