Newspaper Clipping gives strange details about Coral Castle and Edward Leedskalnin

Below is a clipping from the newspaper "Reading Eagle" published on May 30, 1974. It is titled  "Coral Castle - Very Weighty Work" with the subtitle (or supertitle?) "Lifetime Labor for Recluse". The most interesting part of this article is that it says ""Leedskalnin checks some of his handmade equipment (bottom photo) which he used to lift and put in place huge coral rocks which he had also carved by hand". The bottom photo shows Ed spinning his flywheel. Did Ed use the flywheel to construct Coral Castle? The newspaper also refers to the big crescent on top of the north wall as "The Crescent of the East". What does it mean?
