In addition to the excellent advice offered by ALE you may 
also want to consider another Sans Serif Font. Helvetica, 
like Times Roman, is used to the point of being trite. 
IMO it is wise to consider similar but slightly different 
fonts.  I don't know what your Scribus system offers but 
mine shows:
DejaVu Sans Bold
Liberation Sans Bold
Luxi Sans Bold
Nimbus Sans L bold

On my Windows XP partition I could not find Helvetica. So 
it may be a font that comes with e.g., MSOffice, which I 
don't have.
