Can anyone tell me why the compiler does not like the last sysout statement in the code below?

I'm already aware that if you put the sysout statement in a block or a method that it will compile, so maybe I should rephrase the question. Are the only statements allowed outside of blocks/methods declarations and assignments? If not, what other statements are allowed?
Please disregard this post. I think I now understand the class coding constraints.
