```To start with, you have only 13 *and not 14* polynomials. I would suggest
you make a straightforward assignment, such as

In:=
Clear[s];
s = {1 + x, 1 + x + x^2, 1 + x + x^3,
1 + x^2 + x^3, 1 + x + x^6, 1 + x^3 + x^6,
1 + x + x^2 + x^4 + x^6, 1 + x + x^3 + x^4 + x^6,
1 + x^5 + x^6, 1 + x + x^2 + x^5 + x^6,
1 + x^2 + x^3 + x^5 + x^6, 1 + x + x^4 + x^5 + x^6,
1 + x^2 + x^4 + x^5 + x^6};

Here you check that there are only 13:
In:=
Length[s]
Out=
13

so that, for example,

In:=
s[]
Out=
1 + x

Then, you get

In:=
Product[s[[i]], {i, 1, 8}]
Out=
(1 + x)*(1 + x + x^2)*(1 + x + x^3)*(1 + x^2 + x^3)*
(1 + x + x^6)*(1 + x^3 + x^6)*(1 + x + x^2 + x^4 + x^6)*
(1 + x + x^3 + x^4 + x^6)

as desired. You could benefit enormously by using a proper notation and
display form. Define

In:=
Subscript[s_, n_] := s[[n]]

and display this cell (and other cells, too) as standard form (select the
cell or cells, and then Cell | Convert To | Standard Form). You'll see your
formulas displayed very nicely. It is easy to write Subscript[s, n] by
typing s, then Ctrl - (i.e., Ctrl key and then minus sign) and then n.
