Somehow you are getting a piece of Open Office Writer over the 
top of Scribus.  And that piece also contains a part of the Scribus 
opening splash screen. 

The usual repair steps would include downloading and reinstalling 
Scribus again. If the problem persists  I suggest reverting 
to 1.3.3.x until you can get a cleanly working copy.
