If you set the image to scale to frame then you can scale as you have said. 
The difference is that importing an EPS as vector means the imported object 
is a Scribus object and can be resized just like that. When an image is in a 
frame then you need to scale the frame and adjust the image. By setting scale 
to frame then it will do the auto adjust for you.

Right click on the image and tell it to set the preview resolution to high. 
Normally Scribus creates a 72dpi preview of images for speed.
