How to- fix up old bike-???

Hi- I bought this 1970s amf roadmaster off of craigslist for 35 bucks... Amazingly enough, there was only minor damage (rust, some dings here and there) I'm trying to fix it up but I can't get the crank arms out of the frame!!! Can someone please help me??

This is a restoration project for me (my first) so ANY advice would really help me.
Thanks!

Do you have the right tools? Any photos of the bike would help people make recommendations of what may or may not need to be done.
