Use "Export..." from the File menu - and you'll see EPS quite near the 
top of the file formats list. I also found SVG in the options in my OOo 
1.1.1 version, but I've not yet tested how good the output is usable in 
Scribus - I know though that using EPS generated by OOo Draw do work 
very well...
