Asbestos in white ceiling tiles?

Anyone know if these ceiling tiles could contain asbestos? They are 1 foot by 1 foot, and date back to 1967.
Thanks

I believe they are cellulose.

Mine were cellulose; I had them tested at a EPA-certified lab for $19.00. They sent me an email with the results in less than one day. I would recommend doing this!
