yearbooks assume birth date

I was browsing ancestry.com (through FTM) for my grandfater, just looking for others who looked at his records or yearbooks etc. I found a few year books from the U. of IL, when he was a professor, but the index listed him as 16 years old. I could comment on his name but not his age. It's like every yearbook is assumed to be a high school yearbook. If you read the image, he worked at teh school, and I know he was born decades earlier. How can we fix that index?

Similarly, when I see an index for directories or news clippings, they are often indexing a person not mentioned anywhere on the page. How can we edit this index? i can add a comment, but someone would have to drill to the image to read it.
Here is an example:
