The difference is that s1 is a member of the class, whereas s is a local variable in the main method. The reason you're getting an error is that you can't have loose statements in the class body.
The line s1 = new String[10] should be either in a method or constructor body, or you should initialize s1 directly.

The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.
