Open the AppleScript Editor in the /Applications/Utilities/ folder and paste in the following:
do shell script "ls -al /var/log/*.out"
Save the script and set it as a login item in the Users & Groups pane of System Preferences.
Thanks Niel for the help.
So now that I have an icon created from doing what you mentioned earlier. Do I just double click on the icon, then when the Apple Script Editor window appears, do I just click on the Run button, and then the result of the ls -al /var/log/*.out will be displayed in the bottom part?
