With EPS, it's at least worth a try to see if Scribus can import as a
vector (File > Import > EPS).
With your PDF, there should be higher than 72 dpi when you import. It
may be hard to tell if you have your screen resolution set low (File >

resolution and not the import. Also, once to export to PDF there is a
setting for image resolution you want to set.
In the end, you won't know until you look at printed output or view the PDF.
