By default TeXworks uses pdflatex to typeset the document. You're still using the [dvips] option to the graphics package. Remove that option:


will do it. Then, assuming you have a fairly recent TeX distribution, pdflatex will automatically convert the .eps file to a .pdf file and then include that; the conversion is file.eps->file-eps-converted-to.pdf and taken care of by the graphicx package.

Good Luck,
