Synopsis
Richie relies on a scientist's computer to translate unintelligible dialogue spoken by Fernando, and mentions that the country the wrestler comes from a nation that has a very unpronounceable name starting with U, which the professor decides to simply call the letter U (which stands for "unpronounceable"). Richie heads to the arena where Fernando is wrestling, and there are guards in front of his room. Richie distracts their attention by throwing money for them to pick up, but Richie does get noticed and Fernando is even more aggressive than before.

Richie Rich; Gloria Glad; Bascomb; Richard Rich, Sr.; Dollar; Cadbury; Regina Rich
Synopsis
Richie and Gloria hold a garage sale on the Rich estate, where many unusual toys are being offered. The sale was unsuccessful, until after it was over and a man makes an offer on two small cars - and Cadbury said Mr. Rich refuses to sell them for one million dollars. The man offers to buy them for one dollar more, and the garage sale was a success after all.

Indexer Notes

"$" instead of an "S" in "Sale" in the title is correct, as that is what is displayed in the title shown in the first panel.
