West Philadelphia, high school, girl

I am looking for assistance in identifying the character on this pin back issued by West Philadelphia High School in 1951.  The Philadelphia high schools had a tradition of issuing a button specific to their graduating class.  Each class also chose an unofficial class mascot to adorn the pin.  This pin back shown an image of a young girl with ponytails and has a copyright of KFS.  Any help in identifying this character would be most appreciated.  Hud

I found these buttons trash picking and suspect they may have been from the campaign of John Mitchell, the first African American candidate for Governor.  See link:

Happy for any information anyone can provide!
