Girl Scout model: Barbara Smith

of Darien, PA. 
Artist: Paul Martin

She was also the cover model to the 1933 equipment catalog,
If you look carefully, the image in the newspaper clipping is not the same as the poster and catalog. She's saluting in the clipping (hand to hat), but raising 3 fingers on the other items.

This poster image appeared in many places, here it's on the cover of the Silver Jubilee Camp brochure at Camp Andree in 1937, the July 1937 Christian Herald and the American Girl cover
