  1. On December 20th 1972, a Steamboat under Italian flag called Glennsanox arrived to Honolulu from Macao. Its final destination was Puntarenas Port, in Costa Rica, Central America. On board there were 685 Chinese men. They were taken to work on coffee and sugar cane plantations and in the railroad in Costa Rica. The Steamboat stayed over a week in Honolulu. Some hawaiian (English-language) newspapers published several articles about the ship’s conditions and also about the attempt to escape of two of the Chinese men. How can I search about the possible publication of articles about these events on the Hawaiian-language newspapers?
