Translation of article: Ms. Maki Akagi, teacher for 35 years, oldest teacher in Honolulu, is retiring. Last Sunday, a farewell party was thrown for Maki Akagi, who worked for Kaimuki Japanese school for the past 20 years. She is the wife of Mr. Takezo Akagi, and she came to Hawaii after teaching in the Saha district, Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan. Over the years, she taught several thousand students. She was honored for 30 years of teaching by the Hawaii Board of Education in 1937. She says, "I retired from being a teacher after a long time. But it doesn't mean that I can't be a teacher anymore. I think I'm just going to rest for a while since I'm a little tired."
