      ==========================

      Ira J. Cooper offered
      Powel Crosley a deal - he
      would supply the raw
      material and
      manufacturing for Insyde
      Tyres, if Crosley would
      put up $500 and handle
      sales.

      "I will give you a five-
      hundred dollar credit on
      materials," Cooper told
      him. "After you use that
      up, you start paying for
      the material you get."

      Crosley borrowed the
      money from his father
      and, with Cooper, formed
      the American Automobile
      Accessories Company,
      which also went by the
      trade name "Americo".
      He set up an office at
      621 Main Street in
      Cincinnati, where a
      secretary opened mail and
      handled telephone calls.
      ==========================
      Next: Powel promotes his
      new company.
