Parentheses





=71. Political Parties
In legislative or congressional reports in
which the political affiliation of a member, or the state or county from
which he comes, is given, enclose the party, state, or county name in
parentheses: as, Mr. Smith (Dem., S. C.), Mr. Harris (Jefferson).

=72. General Usage
Avoid the use of parentheses within sentences. Two
short sentences are better than one long one containing a parenthetic
expression. A sentence having a clause within marks of parentheses can
generally be cut into two sentences and for newspaper purposes made more
effective.
