This works interactively.  Certainly there are other ways.

In the filename field in the SYS:Documents.Panel, type 
*.Log.  MM on [Show].  A list of 6 or so names should appear.  
MR on System.Log to select it.  MM on [Open ^].  System.Log 
should open.  MM on [Open] doesn't work.

Never tried it.  Would have to study and work at it.  
Googling "site:oberon.ethz.ch  gadgets", 
"site:oberon.ethz.ch  Oberon.Desk System.Log" and etc. 
should find some ideas.  The "Oberon System 3 - Main Tutorial" 
might have something relevant.

If you are really stumped ask again.
