My copy of PSPP doesn't seem to have a way to generate the test using dialogs so you have to use syntax.  Here's what you need to do:

1) Open your data file (or the file attached)
2) Then open a syntax file (in the data window, choose File > New > Syntax)
3) Paste the below syntax.  Variable "DV" is the dependent variable and variable "group" is the grouping variable which has values 1, 2, 3.  It looks like your grouping variable must have contiguous integer values. Change DV to your dependent variable and change group and (1 3) to match your grouping variable.
4) In the syntax window, choose Run > All

  /K-W=DV BY group(1 3)
