This photo was on the front page of The Madison Mirror (Volume XXXXIII, NO. 3) on October 23, 1964.
Since search engines do not "read" the names in the image's caption, I'm reprinting it here, in order to make this post more searchable:
The 1964 Homecoming Court of Honor, as chosen by the Senior High last week, is pictured above with their escorts. The girls are, from left to right: Jill Hayman, Terry Burrows, JoAnn Benell, Suzanne Seifert, Linda Balser, and Bev Burmeister. Senior members of the football squad, who will serve as their escorts, are, front left to right: John Geiger, John Bierman, Skip Pagel, Skip Edmunds, Jim Kinder, Ken Levake, and Ralph Guerin. Missing is Lois Rubin, who was absent when the picture was taken.
Question: If these guys were the girls' "escorts," who were their dates? And who were the girls's dates? Does anyone remember?

Accessing The Madison Mirror online at the DCHS
Before you click on over to the DCHS site to view the online versions of The Madison Mirror, a few words of advice/wisdom/caution:
(1) The link in the middle of the "I Remember Madison Central High" page for title "Read The Madison Mirror" doesn't work; use the one in the sidebar ("View The Madison Mirror") instead.
(2) When you click on the "View The Madison Mirror" link, you'll reach a 32-page PDF document with a list of links to the issues of The Madison Mirror in chronological order. This means you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. Most people do, but if you don't have it, you'll have to install it. Use this link to Adobe for a free download (and uncheck the box for the free eBay Desktop before you start to save space on your hard drive).
(3) BE VERY CAREFUL: Many of the PDF files for individual issues of The Madison Mirror are HUGE. I've found some that are 12 MG. If you're still using a dial-up connect, you probably don't want to try to access any of these PDFs because it will take too long to open them. Even if you have a high-speed connection, you may find that you're unable to open some issues because of the size. Trying to do so may tie up your browser. Note: It's not just me (and I have DSL). Some other alumni have also been trying to open issues of particular interest to them and reported to me that they couldn't.
