vintage rear dropout adjusters???

I have an old Centurian Ironman and both of the long screws are missing. Can somebody tell me the proper term for these adjustors and possibly where to procure them. Thanks for your help.

I have a Rossin Genisis which I don't think is one of their top of the line frames but it sure is a great ride. Mine is a 56cm and I would prefer it to be a 54 but we can't have everything.
