and i'm trying to call them in the php page using

The user picks them after the php is already done executing and the response has been sent to the client.
If you use the querystring or form with GET method, use $_GET['s1'].
If you use a form with POST, use that $_POST['s1'].

How are you submitting the form?
And what's the error you get? By "not liking it", what do you mean? What are the values you are giving the options in the select?
